grow up !!: This is not a forum for karmic gyaan ... what Reliance Jio is going do will be a betterment and enablement of the consumers to take them to the next digital way of living which none of the legacy and other telcos have failed miserably ..... Indian consumers are still struggling with the broadband speeds I would say !! Just that RJIL needs the right spectrum of 700 MHz and the right fiber reach for FTTH to realize that ....

The Comms Tech

Lots to look forward too: There is a lot riding on the performance of the new Indian government. I am a keen follower of the global telecom market and India's current position in telecom intrigues me. Searching on the Internet after reading your nice article, I came across this blog - http://wirelesstelecom.wordpress.com/2014/06/02/wireless-telecom-industry-wish-list-for-the-new-government-in-india/ It does capture some essence of what the operators are looking for.
