This is the thing that bothers most whenever i plan to go on a trip. Before planning anything i search for network connectivity in that area but this topic is left by most of the people in their blogs and thats the reason you don't find anything regarding this on internet.
(1.) IDEA/VODAFONE : Idea sucks in kinnaur valley, most of the time you wouldn't get a network and at main places like kalpa, Reckong peo when you will get network you will suffer from low internet connectivity. Calls works fine in most cases.
Internet : 2G in most places, at some places (rare) you will get 3G, forget about 4G. It even sucks in kalpa, R/P.
(2) Reliance jio : It is better than idea/voda most of time you have network, calling is good.
Internet : fluctuate between 3G/4G at almost all places.
(3)Airtel : Airtel is badass. It always have network ( except Chitkul) Calling is best. Best network works everywhere.
Internet : Always 4G (sometimes comes to 3G also(rare))
(4) BSNl : It gives you network in almost every corner of kinnaur. You won't find no signal anywhere in kinnaur as long as you have BSNL.
Internet : It takes time to turn on internet but it gives internet in almost all places (3G).
[Chitkul case ] : Till 2013 there wasn't any network connectivity in Chitkul because of Military order, But after 2013 BSNl started its office here and now BSNL is the only service provider here.
NoTe: No private network works in Chitkul.
Idea/voda stops 40 km before Chitkul.
Jio stops 8 km before Chitkul.
Airtel stops 4 km before Chitkul.
Only BSNL works in Chitkul.
Only calling No internet connection.
