Unable to get good mobile phone connectivity while travelling on Indian Railways network or highways? Tired of persistent call drops and call failures while on the go? A recent report released by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) suggests that all telecom companies, except Reliance Jio, have failed the call drop test on three chosen Indian Railways routes!
