Airtel, also known as the Bharti Airtel Limited is an Indian company that provides telecommunication services. Founded back in 1995, the company has been providing voice and internet services to users all across the globe. Operating in over 18 countries, Airtel is one of the largest SIM card networks in the world. We are going to take a look into the features and performance of the Airtel network and its SIM card. So, if you are planning on subscribing to a SIM card, this Airtel review might help you.
Airtel provides flawless voice calling service and coverage all over 18 countries. The voice quality is excellent. From hours of continuous voice call testing, we never faced a disconnection issue or a drop in quality. If your primary focus on a SIM card is making voice calls, Airtel is probably one of the best options you can go for. They also provide unlimited voice packs for those who want to enjoy unrestricted voice calls without any limits. A true monster when it comes to voice calls.
When it comes to the quality of the voice calls Airtel surely stands out of the crowd. Compared to its competitors, Airtel has a pretty good voice quality even during extreme weather conditions. Even in the rural areas, they have good coverage allowing people to communicate without any interruptions. Several of our employees using Airtel have confirmed that the voice quality is top-notch and the network interactions are very rare to none. So you wouldn’t have to worry about the quality of the voice calls while using Airtel.
Like any other mobile operators, Airtel also provides many voice-only packs as well as combo plans. Talktime plans starting from just 10 rupees ranging up to 5000 rupees can be chosen based on user preferences. When an affordability point of view, their combo plants always stand out. You will have to recharge with an extra validity plan over the talk time plans in order to enjoy the features.
Airtel Internet Services are unparalleled when it comes to speed. The pricing plans are not the cheapest in the internet data industry. However, they still provide some of the best unlimited 4G packs. Competing with the market leaders such as Reliance Jio and Vodafone Idea, Airtel previously made adjustments to their data packages to hold onto the market. The speed of their internet connection is the most attractive feature that we found. If you are someone who uses the internet a lot and its speed matters a lot to you, the Airtel SIM card is the perfect fit.
As we already mentioned Airtel has one of the fastest internet services in India. They are also slowly stepping towards the latest 5G technology by cooperating with the other brands. The speed of the Airtel 4G is even comparable to the Jio services. While there was a serious decline in the speed due to the heavy amount of usage during the lockdown periods, Airtel still managed to hold on to the high demand while many other providers include in Jio experienced a serious drop in the internet speed. So Airtel is definitely one of the fastest internet service providers in India.
Airtel provides both data and voice packages either as separate plans or as combo packages. Here are the Airtel plans.

Airtel customer service is also pretty good from our tests even though several users have reported that they were not able to resolve their issues. It is a common thing with any mobile operator that on certain things they will not be able to help the users. From what we can see from our experience is that there were willing to help with any of the issues we had without any problems. The biggest issue we faced with customer care is that the waiting time. Sometimes it took us up to 5 minutes just to get connected to the customer service. Might be due to the heavy demand in this COVID situation.
Overall we are satisfied with the Airtel customer service. Once you get connected, they will try their best to resolve your issues. The only problem that it might take some time to get connected and explain your issues to them. Once you do you you are good to go.
