Idea Offers Poor Quality GPRS EDGE Service in Kerala

After trying out the GPRS EDGE service of Idea for which i was billed 9 Rs per day,i found that it was not worth the money.The network always gives preference to their voice network and data gets too slow.I travelled with my laptop at different towns of Kerala, and found the service was poor.It gets a little better at night.So a person cannot use internet on travel using this service.The net gets disrupted every now and then.The service is really bad.So users wait till they upgrade their network.
