Top 5 Best Mobile GSM and CDMA SIM Network in India

Airtel Logo
In India, Mobile Phone SIM is a problem due to vast area and less coverage. Here is the list of best SIM.

After 2G and 3G auction in India, most of the network operators entered in the competition of providing the telecom service. After this auction had confirmed as a scam, we came to know that most of them are cheap networks, also they have entered in this competition of Indian Telecom.

Here is the list of Best mobile networks in India:

Update 1: With a lot of comments and personal experience review from our friends on this articles, we have identified as Airtel is still in #1 position with best coverage, customer care service and MyPlan offers.

     Rank #1: Airtel

I personally prefer and use Airtel, it has the best network coverage even in rural areas. Taking about its offers, it provide good offers and value added service.

Customer support 121, is also quick and easily accessible. I would give the Airtel as the best network award.

Rank #2: Vodafone

I have never used Vodafone but, all my friends do use this telecom. The service provided by this Vodafone is good. Network coverage is also good but only in urban areas. I don’t prefer to suggest this network in rural areas even they have network coverage over there.

Update: Vodafone has given a tough competition of Airtel last year. But only drawback of Vodafone is there tariff rate. It costly for average Indian users.

Its 3G signal and speed is awesome as compare to other service providers.

Rank #3: Idea

Idea is one of the oldest network along with Airtel. Network coverage is also good in rural and urban areas. They don’t offer best goodies. The tariff rates are higher than other. It offers good 3G pack but connectivity to 3G is very weak, it gets disconnected.

Rank #4: Reliance

Reliance India Mobile had first introduce in CDMA then it step into GSM field. The network coverage is good but most of time it has problem. There are many migrants from Reliance to other telecom because of contant network problem.

Rank #5: Tata Docomo

Same as Reliance Tata has stepped into GSM after its success in Tata Indicom landline CDMA. With the collabration with the Docomo telecom of Japan. It entered in India telecom service. There is problem with the network connectivity with this telecom. Offers provided by this company is awesome. Cheap and best so it is ranked better than BSNL.

Other Networks

Other network which are in India are Cellone, BSNL, Uninor, Videocon, MTS, and more.

BSNL or Cellone, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited   is government of India undertaking, but the network of this is very bad. Most of the time the IVR gives only one error message that “Person you are calling is out off coverage area” even though BSNL person is standing just beside you.

Update 2: BSNL is trying to improve there overall service in 2015 Union Financial Budget. We do hope they will increase there user base and provide best service as other private telecom companies.

Uninor, is the cheap network came in during the 2G scam. The offers provided by Uninor is great but the problem is with the network coverage. I have recently heard that, TRAI has cancelled the licence of Uninor.

Aircel, this is very famous in southern part of India. As it was first launched in Chennai so most of the people in south prefer to have this network.

MTS, it provide the best internet data speed and plans. But after scam came in to picture, its licence was also got cancelled in major circle.

Number of user in 2014:

  1. Airtel – 310 million user
  2. Reliance – 310 million user
  3. Vodafone – 220 million user
  4. Tata Docomo – 210 million user
  5. Uninor – 210 million user
  6. Aircel-201 millon user
  7. Bsnl -115 million user

Note and Conclusion:

Even though there are lot of upcoming telecom service providers, giving you best plan, call rates, talk-time  etc. still prefer to go for top 5 only. It will not cause you any future problems.

    this is wrong when compare to vodafone and airel, vodafone is better for network coverage

    • Editor says:

      I personally used all SIM card network. I usually prefer to go with Airtel while in travelling, as it has more coverage than any other network. In major cities and town, Vodafone has better network. So overall I rate Airtel as good.

          • Vivek says:

            Hello Anon

      • ezhil says:

        I am from tamilnadu.I am living in a village.for the past 5 months I have been using idea..They are giving lots of offers.reduced tariff,very low charged boosters,top ups more than the amount,etc..Inspite of all these,their network coverage is poor.the signal quality is worst.voice quality is pathetic.They concentrate on adding customers by giving offers.they dont concentrate on quality of service.Thats why i have changed to vodofone..The quality of service is amazing.My wife is using airtel.These two networks have covered almost all parts of india either urban or rural.

  5. vinay naik says:

    BSNL ( Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited )

    • Editor says:

      True ! Agreed. But BSNL needs to improve a lot in terms of network and most important there customer care service person. I find most of them are not even know some basic network settings and data plans. There will keep on hold for almost 5-10 mins to check in there system. I don’t know what do the check.

    • Editor says:

      Please ask your local or neighbor or friends which SIM they use for Internet Speed. I guess, Airtel or Vodafone will satisfy your need.

  14. Jamal says:

    Airtel is good but its calling rate is very high. Give me a name of good network SIM with lowest rate.

    • Editor says:

      I guess Tata DOCOMO will satisfy your need. But its also depend on your region and network coverage.

    • Vishal says:

      Reliance is best as per it’s call rate cutters and internet both are good than other mobile networks.i suggest all should buy Reliance for good services,i also use Reliance for me and my family.

  15. Sachin says:

  17. Jalja Patel says:

    I’ve been using vodafone since 9 years.. It’s network is good but these days its data network isn’t good. It shows signal but never send or load any page so I’m planning to do portability but dont know which network I should prefer. And above all they are increasing their charges for data plan and not giving best of it!

  18. Manan says:

    Airtel s**ks and tata docomo is way better

  22. Aswin Thomas says:

    Airtel is better network i prefer while travelling in train compared to idea. But Airtel is in competition with Vodafone.

  23. alok singh says:

    For strongest Signal – 1. airtel 2. vodafone all other operators are not so good…meanwhile airtel is most stable network.voda fluctuates somehow…it depends on frequency being used by them..but i have seen in u.p. east and west , where vodafone is on 900 mHz..but still fluctuating signal…this affects voice for best quality of service ..go for airtel…for cheap calls ..go for uninor..dont use bsnl bakwas….yes data speed of voda is better than anyone..costs of voda and airtel are same…so ultimately i suggest that choose a sim of 900mHz band operator in your circle and not 1800mHz band.

  24. at says:

    Vodafone iam usng for above 2-3 years and its best but 2g very slow and 3g is not bad.custmercare very good and network best but reacharges plans and data plans are higher cost which sim i would be take for net talk

  33. Nidi Omar says:

    In my opinion Airtel & BSNL is good .

    Airtel have a good network coverage throughout the country.
    I use to travel a lot in that case (roaming) BSNL is affordable,
    affordable in all sense 3G at lower price and with other value added services.
    There is certain problem in the network of BSNL , in case of Airtel the roaming charge has been decreased an it is now a bit affordable but 3G plan….. OMG its really costly .

    • Digit Speaker says:

      Nidi, Agreed with your comments. BSNL been the cheaper but, not the best. It needs lot of improvement. Especially, the knowledge of Customer Care executives, dumbos.

  34. Malay says:

    Help I’m confused about which sim is better….. for call, net, messaging…..or converge. I’m have used Reliance is totally poor sim and slow net…. please suggeste me to buy better and best sim..

    • Digit Speaker says:

      Reliance service is pathetic. I used it in beginning of my mobile era. Then I switch to Airtel and never looked back. Highly recommended. Second would be Vodafone, but it will burn your pocket.

  35. Meenakshi Agarwal says:

    I am situated in Tamil nadu. I am a currently using of vodafone from past 10 – 15 years but wish to switch over to another netwrok. The network is weak in rural areas and also i found the airtel my plans to be quite attractive as i feel vodafone find my bills be be quite expensive. My father is very particular about network as he is usally on the go. He suggests that BSNL has the best network but i feel Airtel has. What would you suggest? Should i stay in Vodafone itself and change to a better plan? Or switch to airtel or bsnl? My main parameters are first Network Coverage and second the cost. So kindly help.

    • Digit Speaker says:

      Hi Meenakshi,

      I would recommend Airtel, as they have very good network even in rural areas all over the country. And yes, Airtel My Plans service has brought up some huge relief in paying huge bills for unused service.

      For your father, Airtel is best as it also offers roaming pack in my plans.

  36. sam srx says:

    In my opinion ……idea is the best network……coz its offers a lots of plans …………..(raising fastly)

  37. sujeeth says:

    I am using reliance for past 6 years for that time I was in different states.But in present reliance is pathetic its network coverage is horrible, before 3G speed was good but now it is also pathetic.Now I am porting to Airtel .Though I guess after uninor reliance has the lowest voice call rates and data packs.

  38. Vijay Bankar says:

    Airtel is best

  39. aditya says:

    Tata docomo network coverage weak single how to strong

  42. ISHAN says:

    See I am from Manipur, and here we only know about a few sim connecting networks – Bharati Air tel, Reliance and guess the best network is Videocon, whose network started in 2009, here. And when we talk about Vodafone’s network, it is the worst as it was planning to set up its network here since 2011 but is unsuccessful till date. Whereas brands like Loop mobile have overtaken them. And same is about uninor and idea

  43. arun chawla says:

    • Kushal Azza says:

      In-terms of network, second option I would suggest would be Airtel. And for Caller User Group (CUG), I think(not sure) reliance has better offers at low pricing.

    • Kushal Azza says:


      BSNL is very poor and degrading its service day by day. If you want to go premium service, I would recommend either with Airtel(preferred) or Vodafone.

  52. Pooja says:

    tell only one sim for full coverage best internet

    • Kushal Azza says:

      Suggest are Airtel and Vodafone. You may also consider using Idea, if they have good signal quality in your locality.

  55. ananya says:

    Which sim is better for net ,Vodafone, tata docomo or reliance?

    • Kushal Azza says:

      From above three mentioned, Vodafone is good but it is costly. If you prefer to go for low cost, then Tata DOCOMO is another option I suggest but, please check with network signals.

  56. ezhil says:

    Friends.Here are my suggestions.As for as network coverage and quality of service is concerned,both airtel and vodafone are excellent..but I will agree with what zakir said.even I have experienced once.They will cheat you when use any value added services.So i recommend not to use airtel sim for both calling and value added services.Use the sim for anyone function.

  57. Tanu says:

    tell me about reliance GSM

  58. Tanu says:

    ezhil which sim is better for call, sms, internet and coverage.

  59. Rajaguru says:

  62. vinay says:

    Best network coverage all over india rural areas – Airtel
    and next place bsnl.

  63. Sujoy Ganguly says:

    This is the best review I am writing.

    1.Best network – AIRTEL & VODAFONE both . 95% Area. ( 9.5 out of 10) ( Costly )
    2.Good network – BSNL 85 % ( 8.5 out of 10) ( Costly Than Airtel & Vodafone)
    3.Average network – IDEA 80 % ( 8 out of 10) (Costly than reliance) , Reliance 75 % ( 7.5 out of 10) cheap rate than AIRTEL/VODAFONE/BSNL/IDEA
    4.Bellow Average Network – AIRCEL/DOCOMO 65 % ( 6.5 out of 10) Cheap rate than all but poor Network.

    But Now a days we use dual sim Mobile phone. Sim 1 for Strong Network for emergency (while out of town/city) & SIM 2 for cheap call rate/sms/Data (home range) like Reliance/Idea with Average Network.

  64. Sujoy Ganguly says:

    Kushal Azza @ I completely agree with you that now a days Vodafone is most costliest tariff network. but we should remember that they provide good network coverage to us. So we can use dual sim one is for good network coverage like Airtel /Vodafone & another is for low call rate with average network coverage like Reliance.

  65. Sujoy Ganguly says:

    When i travel in train & search for network , i always get 4 networks.
    AIRTEL>VODAFONE>BSNL>RELIANCE . This is my 12 years mobile experience .
    All the best.

    • Kushal Azza says:

      Hi Sujoy, Thanks a lot for wonderful statics. I really appreciate for your time you spend on this.

      And I totally agree with “AIRTEL > VODAFONE > BSNL > RELIANCE” :)

      Best Regards,

    • Matthew says:

      I totally agree Vodafone because it isn’t good in train

  66. Kishan says:

    I have been using airtel since last 7-8 years. Connectivity good in rural areas also. Only thing I feel is, airtel is a little bit costlier than other service providers.

  67. martin says:

    I use BSNL from past two years. Initially the network was bad, but after frequent complaints, they have upgraded the network twice, hence from mid 2014 onwards, the network is very good. Plans are very affordable. Especially when travelling in train and when or in remote areas , other networks are Off but BSNL always has network. Its the best in my opinion. No spam calls, mo unnecessary ad calls. The only downside acc to me is their 3G speed which is not good. But its 2G speed is great .. !! My circle is south Karnataka. I am not sure how good is BSNL service at other parts..

  68. varun kumar says:

    Airtel is much better than vodafone and airtel is best signal and vodafone is very bad network signal and very costly internet plans

    Dear Vinay : Best network coverage is Airtel. Best network. u can use airtel. It is the largest mobile network business operator in India in gsm mobile network. Airtel has 21.5 crores subscribers . no dropped call , good grps speed, clear voice quality. u can trust Airtel .
    Vodafone is also good.

  72. Vivek says:

    hi , i am using airtel. Before airtel i use vodafone . But vodafone is very weak network and bad 2g network. And vodafone has no own 3g network .this is aurthorised airtel 3g network . So vodafone is not exceptable in bihar and jharkhand and village. when i used vodafone then his 2g speed is averege 6kB/sec ,7kB/sec
    Now i use airtel this averege speed is 20kB/sec to 26,27kB/sec

    • Kushal Azza says:

      Hi, Vivek. Yes you are absolutely correct. After invasion of 3G network in India, most of the operators have lower down there 2G speed so that most of there customer could switch to 3G. This is just a money making trick used by service provider. In north India circles (Delhi, Bihar, etc), Airtel is having good speed as compare to Maharashtra. Here I have only 8KB/s to 10KB/s downloading speed in city.

  88. Jeet says:

    I am using Airtel. For last 7 years. The download and upload speed is best and better then vodafone and any other network provider in delhi and ncr. However when I co to punjab non of these 2 works(airtel and vodafone). However airtel works for calling very easily in punjab as well. But in terms of 3g internet speed. airtel and vodafone both are far behind from idea as idea gives better 3g internet coverage in punjab. However. Apart from internet speed. There is no loop fall in airtel network in punjab. They can earn more customers if they work on their 3g internet speed in punjab.

    • Kushal Azza says:

      Hi Jeet, Even I have experienced same issue with Airtel. Recently I went to Telangana, there in a town Airtel Speed was about 8Mbps. Whereas in Pune I get only 3Mbps. Speed of network may differ from circle to circle.

  89. Sujoy Ganguly says:

    3G/2G speed depends on circle to circle & network Connectivity (towers, frequencies) .I am also using BSNL 3G . outstanding speed. i can download a mp3 song (5-6mb) within 7-10secs.

  90. Sujoy Ganguly says:

    AIRTEL/VODAFONE/BSNL/RELIANCE/AIRCEL/IDEA , they provide 3G with avarage download speed 300-400kbps. :-)

  91. vinay says:

    I am setle with airtel & bsnl.
    best network coverage overall india rural areas.

    Sujay i am full confused airtel best network coverage or bsnl ?????????

  95. B.Chaitanya Kiran says:

    Vodafone has good signal but it costs a lot for calls and net.
    The net offers are really worst when compared to all the other things. I think its better to prefer airtel,idea or bsnl for the best internet offers.
    Vodafone removes the offers very fast. If we use a good and profitable offers once; we find it for the next time of our reacharge. .
    So, i think vodafone is waste and worst. .

  96. pardeep says:

    2g.speed best. Airtel.idea

  97. Bg says:

    The worst network in India is aircel only

  98. ananya says:

    pls tell me about tata DOCOMO net connectivity and network provided by them

  99. ranjan says:

    i hope Vodafone sim is always good.

  100. Ankush says:

    Idea is good in Delhi but poor in Noida & Gurgaon far off areas. In Delhi also Idea easily get affected in metro rail, in basement & if your seat in office is near a pillar.

  101. Prashant says:

    Vodafone is best in signal strength as I have used it in Galtare rural area in Maharastra, then Airtel was 2nd, others zero there and i have found that Reliance CDMA signal is always better than others irrespective of area, though you have to mae call twice as it never connects your call at the very first attempt and person calling you will also feel same. recently it launched rs.41 or 42 special recharge – talk unlimited for 1 day.

  102. Ankur says:

    Help me which sim is better for network converge and voice call data and SMS

  103. suman says:

    Hi,suman here am from kolkata i am using vodafone since 3years realy am enjoying there network and 3g speed is excellent but when i go to any rural areas lots of network problem arise then,am using airtel since 8months sometimes i feel problem in kolkata but in rural areas airtel is awesome,so its being clear that though airtel and vodafone is leading operators in india but there also have some disabilities.

  104. Vinoth says:

    Which is the best Sim in tamil nadu,,
    I m waiting 4 ur answer ☺☺☺

    • Arun says:

      Vodafone is the best… In Urban and Rural.
      I’ve been using it for 7years and I’m really happy with the quality of the network. The customer care is very responsive when u raise a complaint. 3G is blazing fast and can never be compared to any networks. Go with Vodafone..

  105. Animesh says:

    In my opinion aircel is the best simcard to be used in Jharkhand.

  106. vinay says:

  110. Arun Panwar says:

    Reliance is awesome as it provides very cheap internet. But only in some areas, its networks are unavailable but wherever i most lives, the network is awesome. It should come in No. 1 or 2nd. :)

  111. parv gour the great says:

    hey u r wrong BSNL should stand at first position and airtel at 2 nd position and i have checked all the speed of all companies… and 700kb/s downloading speed and 402 kb/uploading speed it is very best and great coverage area…..

  112. PARV GOUR the great says:

    hey. BSNL should be stand at first and airtel:‚ vodafone in 2 nd & 3rd becoz the connectivity and coverage area of bsnl is very even in rural areass… i have checked all the companies speed and the speef of bsnl is 701kb/s downloading and 402kb/s uploading

    NO 3 – BSNL

  118. Sujoy Ganguly says:


  119. Sujoy Ganguly says:


  120. Sujoy Ganguly says:

    Bsnl is Indias fastest growing cellular service. Approximately 11% of people in India are using bsnl. They have brought gsm service at an affordable cost to the common man.

    Pros : 3G Services. Economical. Pyari Jodi Plan. High Talk Value per Recharge, Good customer service (only dial 1503, no waiting), selft help option (for voice call TARIFF type ” HELP VOICE ” SEND 53733) ETC

  125. Amit kumar says:

  128. Raghav says:

    LOL. Reliance and Tata Docomo in Rank #4 & 5 and BSNL is no where in Top 5. Are you kidding.? Have you ever used Reliance or Tata Docomo GSM SIMs while traveling in rural areas.? BSNL has the coverage to remotest areas (even in forest) whereas other networks go away in city outskirts. All the private operators eat-up money by enabling unwanted Value (?) Added Services without user consent. Subscribers are afraid to keep balance. I do no understand on what basis you have given the rankings. Only based on some Metro, Tecchy friends feed-back.? If personal experience and friends are limited to urban areas than keep the article and Rankings to urban. Do not apply this to all over India.

    • Kushal Azza says:

      Yes my dear friend, I have used every network you have mentioned. This is based on my experience as well as users comments on this post. If you want to know actual user experience, go through each and every comment on this article.

  131. vetri says:

    airtel service provider more support customers. 8 yrs i am using no issue

    than voda.tata.idea good not bad

  132. Alok singh says:

    vodafone is also better than
    because airtel data charge is high

  133. Arun says:

    Vodafone provides the best network in India (In Urban and Rural too).
    No other networks can be compared to such a high quality network. It’s 3G service is blazing fast and it speeds above 10Mbps but, Airtel 3G is struggling to reach 4Mbps. That’s the quality of Vodafone.

  134. Rajeev says:

    Best internet along with Airtel network. Reliance gsm network is very creatical it is not working about customer service

  135. sai says:

    Which is best sim in forest which sim can work in forest

  140. Raghu veer says:

    I took airtel prepaid, signal is good, thank you

  141. Atul Kumar says:

    I do not like Airtel because it is very much costly as compare to other to other ISP Network and you must see the overall performance. Which include cost also.

  142. Saniya says:


    which sim best network coverage for rural areas all time ?

  143. Saniya says:

    Kushal Azza Which sim using now ?

  144. KING says:

    BSNL………….. Is the best network. Those private Fu…ing networks always try to charge you by activating unnecessary offers. BSNL always follows the government rules, thus ensuring the people’s safety, whereas others will not. Radiation is more in other networks than that of BSNL. So, Buy new BSNL SIM and throw away other SIMs.

  145. mitra says:

    I have used aircel in Delhi for a long time and was satsified until I wanted 3G when I ported to Idea. i have used Airtel for a longtime from 2006 to 2010. Their customer care was horrible and they deducted a rupee or two daily from my prepaid account. When confronted they said I must have subscribed to something. Disgusting. I thew away the airtel sim then

  146. Saniya says:

    PK all over india urban & rural areas which sim best network coverage all time ?

  147. Vinay says:

    Be carefull
    All private operators profit only, fraud, cheating, foolish.
    BSNL better government service.

  148. anil says:

    Tata-docomo, BSNL and Aircel are the worst.
    In critical situation you will feel this. BSNL will kill your good times.
    Never go for above three. I have good experience.

  149. Vinay says:

    Which service best anil ???

  150. abhi says:

    airtel network is not good in houses but vodafone network is good

  151. RAMA says:

    The network is No.1 for Voice Calls in most of the place. Its striving better to provide the best, but somewhere it fallen down. But its still No.1 in millions. Rural Coverage is also No.1 compared to other networks. 4G No.1 Operator.

    Vodafone IN:
    The network offered is excellent. 3G Is No.1, Airtel 3G is No.2. According to speed. Network is followed by airtel. Call rates are also as like as airtel. Its No.2 Operator by its subs base.
    Customer Care is excellent followed by airtel.

    Network is good but only in cities. Its rural backbone is still in Vodafone IN. The 3G offered by Idea is good. 3G ICR with Vodafone in circles like TN, Chennai is best ever. Call rates are going high with reducing network quality on Idea. Idea Customer Care is worst ever.

    GSM Network:
    Network – Worst. Customer Care – Worst 3G: Slow and Okay.
    Rural Coverage: Worst Ever. Tie Up with : AIRCEL, TATA DOCOMO
    RatesL Going Hi. Without any developments.

    CDMA: Just opposite
    No.1 in CDMA with poor cc.

    TATA Docomo:
    Worst Ever Network overall – CC, Tariff, Internet, COVERAGE.

  152. Sathish says:

    No 1 in broadband, DTH, Cellphone, etc….

    Low price best QoS.
