Looks like they are now dumping old infrastructure of cities and claiming to reach these area. Otherwise who will put old 2G infrastructure when 3G/4G is the future?

Mayank: Please think once before writing such statements. There is no such thing as old infrastructure. The reason is that the mobile penetration is very low in these areas because they are under-developed. The people are using basic handsets only for voice calls & SMS. They neither have the awareness nor the money in hand to spend Rs. 150-200 every month for 3G data pack. That being said, it’s unprofitable for any service provider to provide 3G/4G services is such remote areas. Hopefully when these areas become more developed, high-speed data services will be launched accordingly.
