English cricketer Sam Billings was upset with the poor internet connectivity at his hotel in Mumbai as he took to Twitter to complain about the same. Billings, who is a member of the Delhi Capitals squad, is currently staying in Mumbai for the pre-season training. His Delhi Capitals teammate, Ravichandran Ashwin, attempted to come to his rescue as he gave an epic response.
Sam Billings was so annoyed with the WiFi troubles at his hotel that he also conducted a poll on Twitter to ask the fans which was the best WiFi service in India. Billings posted, "Only one way to decide.... Jio or Airtel WiFi Dongle," giving his fans three options, including others. The majority of the fans voted in Jio's favour with 50.7% of total votes while Airtel received 41.6% votes.

Jio or Airtel WiFi Dongle?
Surprisingly, that was not all as Sam Billings hilariously also responded to a fan when the fan highlighted that it depended on his location. Billings replied, "Ok. In Mumbai for 3 weeks. Then go to Chennai, Ahmedabad and Kolkata. What would you recommend?"

Seemingly concerned by his Delhi Capitals teammate, Ravichandran Ashwin responded to Sam Billings' WiFi issues. "I bought one buddy!! That’s far better, but these hotel walls are resisting the speed," replied Ashwin.
