    Default Coverage nr Chikhli, Gujarat

    Hi All,

    Wondered if any one can help. Going to be in India soon and we will require fast 3G access. I gather from family that we may not get 3G service where we will be which is around 2-3KM east from Chikhli. Chikhli has 3G service and the signal is string but by the time we get to our village there is no 3g just normal 2g.

    Is there anything at all that can be done to extend the 3G coverage? I believe there is a normal IDEA mast near our village.

    Which provider is giving 3G in chikhli?
    Normally BSNL 3G has reasonable signals in most mofussil towns.

    You can buy a powered usb extension cord and keep the usb dongle near/outside window and try for better 3g signal.
    Check with CDMA mobile broadband (max 1 mbps only- reliance netconnect/tata photon/MTS ) providers via telecom shops in your village or in chikhli.
    worst cum worse ,you need to drive daily to chikhli and park /sit in your car (where the signal is good)and browse/download in your laptop.
    Nowadays getting new sim and activation takes minimum 1 week if you are lucky.

    if you are going to stay more than 3-6 months, bsnl wired rural broadband is worth it -check with local exchange.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I beleive it is Idea3G which is giving coverage nearby. I was kind of hoping that Idea might have a faciity whereby they could put up a 3g Signal range extender on the mast near the village. willing to pay towards the installation.

    Is there anyone here from near Chikhli, Rankuwa, Bilimora or even Navsari?
