Read an article in ET which actually surprised me. Mukesh Ambani said he will join hands with Sunil Mittal (his friend) for 4G operations in Punjab. Seems like two rivals are joining hand that will kill the competition and RJIO has understand that cheaper offering will only tell upon their business and they don;t want to be another Aircel or Uninor or Videocon or MTS. 😀
