I think 3G service via ICRA is bigger scam than 2G spectrum scam.

It is better to give spectrum free or illiagally ….so that companies give cheaper data plans to subscribers. What benifit does subscriber get if spectrum is sold at high price through auction? answer is nothing but data price that burns a big hole in your pocket.
