    the subscriber base number are wrong because they are giving free sim with 100 rs talktime in tamilnadu. so many people buy minimum 5 sim using talktime throw it away. so this award was a wrong one.

  • vibes April 8, 2010 4:30 pm

    uninor has very limited service, maybe good for local use, not for traveling. also, they are not participating in the 3G auction, so no 3G in future and growth prospects restricted…

  • rahul raj April 8, 2010 4:20 pm
