    I am NOT saying other operators were NOT looting, before jio days. Yes, they have looted and will continue to do so, if they get the slightest chance, even now. No doubts in that. I do agree that, people are getting huge benefits as well. I am NOT against the benefits for mass. I wholeheartedly welcome this. But why they are NOT caring about high ARPU users??? Do you think, they got profit, just from Jio's operations ALONE and NOT from funds of RIL??? Do you think, they will get returns for the 2.5 Lakh Crores, (this amount is as big as budget of few small countries) by offering to masses only? No, they need to concentrate on high ARPU users as well. I will be more happy, if they offered balanced services like, Rs49 Limited plan for feature phone users and Bulk benefits for high ARPU users. I am NOT losing anything, if Idea or Airtel goes to loss (they already are. Idea for 1 year & Airtel from last qtr for India operations). But lack of competition is a HUGE loss for customers. With NO competition, there will be NO need to ensure quality services. Already CC of Jio is the worst. Guess, the situation, when there is NO or little competition? It is much worse than Rs296/GB, imho. Reg "Revival of Looting Era" -- I don't think it will be as severe as AVoId days of Rs296 per GB for sure. At the max, it can go to Rs303 -- 1GB per day for 28 days. When saying LOSS to customers, it is NOT just about money -- It is loss of quality -- It is the loss of Choice -- It is the loss of peace of mind. With NO competition, your money is valueless. That is the real loss.

    Very good initiative by TRAI. Operators loot public during the blackout days.

    Yeah, much needed for the operators, else many will switch to the 3G provider once MNP starts. I wonder if the subscriber will have to pay anything extra when using a different provider for 3G services though.

    Good news for the customers whose operator has no 3g license in their circle. But what about the 3G tariff by the private players? Initially the tariffs may be sky high.If 3 biggies form an alliance to share the revenue.Hard times for the customer to escape their high tariffs.

    Another significant achievement has been reached by end of yesterday. The revenue from 4G auction alone stands at 36771.9 Cr INR which is greater than initial Govt. estimate for both 3G&4G auctions(35000 Cr INR). :clap: The following are key points. 4G price for Tamil Nadu and Punjab have gone past their respective 3G Prices. TN --> 1,931.06(Current 4G) --> 1,464.94 (3G) Punjab -->332.27(Current 4G) --> 322.01(3G) It clearly indicates that still there are lot and lot of rounds left and there is another 20 circles in which they can play catch up game wrt circles' respective 3G prices. The follwoing are the key quite significant motivating factors for the operators to go in further............. 1) They're going to get 20 MHz in 4G auction against 2*5MHz(10 MHz) in 3G auction. 2) The spectral efficiency of 4G is sginificantly higher than 3G. (this factor may not exist if operators decide to deploy LTE(FDD) in 2.1 GHz band) 3) 4G technology battle b/w WiMAX Vs LTE not yet over hence they can get sinificant support(financial and technical) from chip makers(read as Intel and Qualcomm) which is not the case in 3G(where Qualcomm is monopolistic in EVDO and HSDPA) 4) There is a possibility for 4G-alone greenfield operator since the spectrum of 20 MHz is sufficent for voice and data

    I think they have also asked for a refund of the 3G license fees if the babus insist onstopping the arrangements. They are talking of a deadline tomorrow. Presumably the BSNL/MTNL will be asked to pull the plug wherever thay are involved.
