In Kerala, Airtel is NOT No1 operator, so AtoA 5p/min is expected in Kerala… But Airtel is No1 in Karnataka (in terms of subscribers)… So it is very unlikely to see A2A 5p/min plan in Karnataka… Imho, it will reach Karnataka, only when Airtel plans to launch the scheme Pan-India…


mr sanjay bafna can u tell me whether AIrtel is going to launch A-A 5p/min plan(currently present in keral) in karnataka or no?
