I’ve been using Airtel 2G and recently wanted to try the Reliance 2G. I found that Reliance 2G network is dead slow in Hyderabad (Somajiguda/Hitech City). With Reliance even Google Play, Youtube, Facebook and What’sApp were struggling to load and most of the times kept reporting “Connection time out”
I’ve reported the slowness to Reliance support, escalated to Mumbai GPRS team and worked for couple of hours. Did factory reset, APN re-install, changing Reliance SIM to First slot, etc., with all the speed reached at max of 15 kB/s. However, the average always remained 6 kB/s.
On the other hand, the Airtel reported me 15 kB/s on average and application launch and loading is just running fast.
below is the SpeedTest results of both Airtel and Reliance 2G networks in Hyderabad. Please do NOT buy Reliance 2G services in Hyderabad to avoid regretting later.
