Key Trends for Indian Telecom: The trends outlined are nicely put up. The one aspect which is generally overrated is the growth which is attributed to 4G introduction. The segment which will take the benefit from the technology (4G)is already reaping the benefits of rise of social media, e-commerce and online financial transactions. The big data will be "nice" to add function in marketing, however don't know how many organisations will be able to ACTUALLY derive the benefit. This is not due to lack of analytical skills but due to LIMITATIONS to forsee its implications on customer and organisation.

RCOM roaming pact with Reliance Jio-800 MHz Band: It is one thing to have good feeling -Feel Good Factor but the thing about which it is sanguine should be realisable in the immediate future.Were hearing too many things positive about RJio in the past too but so far nothing has fructified.The records of all private service providers are quite dismal & it would be appropriate "the less about it better".
