I don’t think the Videocon group is anywhere near “broke”. They sold their 1800 MHz spectrum in 6 circles to Airtel a while back. And their consumer electronics business is not doing bad either. And they are into petroleum exploration too.

I wish they could atleast start offering 4-8 Mbps plans in my hometown. We have been just upgraded to 2 Mbps after 2 years of being a customer, lol.
