In a press release, TRAI insists that quality of service parameters need to be adhered to. Oh well, it’s an old hat. However, Pradeep Baijal actually hosted a pdf file on the web site detailing the way operators choose to loot money from the customers. Everyone related to this website knew that, isn’t it?
In another significant order, it has called for rationalisation of the way the subscribers are counted. So, we might just see the actual number of people hooked on to the mobile networks. In a nation of billion people, there are couple of million connections( if we assume that way).
Clearly, India needs to settle it’s house in order if it needs to stay in contention.
Pssst: Why doesnt the media report the actual numbers? Remember, newspapers et al, need advertising revenue. I believe that the largest ad spend among the telecom operators was done by AirTel. They are the ones who are known as the “largest mobile players”. No wonder.
