    I'm thinking about living temporarily in India, hopefully in a rural area.

    Where can I find 3G coverage maps for BSNL and other providers? I went to their website but couldn't find anything.

    Thank you for your help!

    You have to specify the nearest town/city.

    source : google search

    Yeah I saw that result on Google. I'm not in India right now so I can't test out a handset. That's why I need a map of some sort.

    Give specific state or town to narrow down the search.

    Presently the following service providers are offering 3G services, either HSDPA (GSM 3G) or EVDO (CDMA 3G)

    BSNL : HSDPA : In limited cities
    BSNL : EVDO : In a large number of cities and towns
    Reliance : EVDO : In about 60+ locations
    TATA : EVDO : In about 60+ locations
    MTS : EVDO : In about 50+ locations

    You need to be more specific on the location to get availability status

    Okay I think I understand.

    There is no main coverage map which shows all the coverage, right?

    How about Rishikesh in Uttarakhand?

    whenever you come to India,you can also go for private telecome which provides 3g service like airtel,reliance,tata etc.

    But if you specifically wanted to go for bsnl then,You can get bsnl 3g coverage almost every where, all you have to do is to purchase a 3g sim.

    Thank you for replying.

    It's just...what if I'm 1km outside of Rishikesh. Is there 3g? How about 2km away from Rishikesh, but on a hill with direct views of Rishikesh?

    In the US I'm used to country-wide coverage maps. In India I guess there aren't maps like this. You just have to go there, turn on your phone and see if you're getting 3g service.

    Thanks for all your help
