This is not the first time an Indian operator used Vodafone India's material in web content. Earlier it was Videocon and Uninor. It would be certainly interesting to know why every operator including India's No. 1 operator Airtel chooses Vodafone India as a reference for content! What say readers?

Thanks to Darshan for the tip!
