Well they need to build up proper infrastructure for 3G & EVDO that will take some time..
For Internet, BSNL Broadband rocks for the time being counting on the top for its reliability of speed, affordability & its unlimited plans.

It will take a lot of time even for private telcos to provide that reliability of speed on a wireless technology.
