Testing Airtel Speed (Ookla Speedtest) And Open Network Promise At Doddanakundi Bangalore

This is a test of Airtel's speed at Innovative Aqua Front, an appartment that is located at Doddanakundi in Bangalore, near to Doddanakundi lake. Speed and voice clarity is very bad within the apartment. Finally decided to port all 5 numbers within my family, as most residents were also planning. However, Airtel has asked for one more chance.

It Is High Time Other Providers Too Follow Jio Queued Recharges

When you recharge a voucher when existing plan is active, Jio will queue it and make it available once your existing plan gets over. For example, if I recharge for 303 and 503 together in Jio, it gets queues up and can use one after the other/

However, other providers will kill your current plan and activate the new plan effective the date of recharge. This means part of your old plan is lost. Other providers provide good offers mostly before the expiry of your current offer to get benefited from this lose.

Is Airtel Family Plan Defeating the Purpose of Linking Adhar?

Airtel is providing two versions of family plan. One with limited plan and one with unlimited. While you can add a family member for as low as 33 per month in corparate family plan (limited), you can add a member for 299 for the unlimited infinity plan.

However there is a catch. All connections should be in one person't name and should be linked to one Adhar card. Is it defeating the purpose of linking individual adhar to mobile connections. With airtel family, a family will have one adhar linked instead of per person adhar.
