Best Mobile Phone SIM Card for Calangute and Donna Paula

I'm coming to Goa for several weeks and would like to get a SIM Card for my unlocked Android Phone.

I wan to make a few calls, SMS but mainly use Internet on my Phone.

I mainly expect to be based near Calangute Area and Donna Paula.

Could anyone suggest which Network has a good signal in both these areas and decent speed for internet access.

Airtell, Reliance, Tata and Vodafone are good companies with good network.

Hi all,

I'm looking to book a holiday for 3 weeks in Calangute. I currently live in Ahmedabad and Vodafone 3G here is very good (good coverage and average speeds of between 3 and 7 megabits per second - using Speedtest.net on my mobile).

I really need to know how good the coverage and speeds are in Calangute before I book a hotel there.

If anyone can let me know what the coverage is like in the town/village that would be great.

Thanks in advance.

I use Idea, and travel throughout india, and have good coverage all the time, sms at 0.5 paise a local message, 5 rupees international, calls to uk 7 rupees a minute, using net you can pay a small premium which gives unlimited usage for the month, think its 97 rupees a month.

Seems like much has changed since our visit in March 2011. I purchased a Vodafone sim and was told to call Customer service to get internet activated. I eventually gave up as all I had was numerous texts telling me about the bloody cricket and no internet.

Even the bar men at the Hotel tried for me, with no joy!
