I just have one question. How can idea attribute the merit and advantage of INTERNET as their own and starts comparing their data services to that of India’s premier educational institutions. Isn’t that grossly misleading????


They are in one way misleading
they instead would have showed the merits of using internet on their network I mean how does educating apps would work using their internet
how fast would be streaming of videos can be done
But instead it showed their network has educating capacity to those who can’t enter premier institutes


So in simple words, they qualify to be banned for misleading people.


IIN ads will top the list of complaints first,unless this app is developed by IINians or onion heads.


They presume that Internet is owned by them if they open such educating apps then this ad may come real
But they are not able to produce their own cellular apps for Android or iOS I don’t think they would be able to open such apps


Be simple in your comments man,it confuses all the more.
