So well this is the new coinage of the “twisted” pathetic Internet access that we call as broadband. People need to be educated about the word “broadband”. It is the speed with which you can access applications online. Not the restricted pathetic “always- on” connection and neither the narrow band that we are used to. No wonder, guys call it as the “fraudband”.
Airtel is screwing up majorly. They have failed to lauch their promised services and are no where closer to the “revolution”. They do have some plans tailored for the masses; in my opinion, they donot believe in one size fits all approach. These permutations and combinations including the jugglery of the plans only serves to confuse the public; majority of them who would not be able to tell as to why the lights blink on the modem. Internet connectivity is “fast” only if the pages load up “fast”.
Airtel has it’s intentions right when it wants to gear up to “serve it’s esteemed” customers. They screw up on the same because there seems to be no accountability. They have a lousy web site which seems to be “confused” and groping for direction and searching for information means a lot of click throughs.
Why on earth they spend money only to make it useless. A heavy use of flash or corporate goodiness serves no purpose except to irritate the visitiors. Though, I wonder, as to how many realise the fundamental value of clear lines of communication to advertise?
Speaking of “fraudband”, I believe that we are getting sick and tired of the ham handed approach towards access. The snail pace would leave us far behind in the knowledge industry. There are no alarm bells ringing though.
We can just sit back and hope.
