  • i am from kolkata and i would like to know whether anyone is using reliance 3G service from Kolkata. I have a data card which supports 3G Service, however, when i switch the datacard mode to 3G, I see no compatible networks (NOT EVEN RELIANCE).

    I am doubtful that Reliance is providing high band 2G service as 3G. Is there anyone who has experienced 1.5mbps 3G Service of Reliance?

  • @Rajiv.. i am also from kolkata and i also use a data card with reliance 3g card and plans.but not mine also shows any 3g ..it just shows speed of 21.6 mbps on the connections status but the actual speed is not more than 250kbps….can anyone help me out.
