Airtel has launched 3G broadband service in and nearby Dehradun. I have also got
Airtel 3G broadband service launch message. And I was quick to follow their messages to know more about the much awaited 3G service of the Airtel.
And Talking to their customer service (12134) revealed that you can use 3G service of Airtel without much changes in your mobile and you can get a speed of 2.5 mbps provided that your handset is 3G compatible.
Even if you are using 2G internet pack ( e.g. Rs 98), there will be no problem as the setting that would be send by them will work in both case of 2G and 3G.( as told by the rogue customer care executive).
Charges of the Airtel 3G service in Dehradun
1-Rs 9 for 10 mb for a single day usage
2-Rs 197 for the whole month etc.
