The news articles implies 1.6 base stations per village – the coverage is NOT ENOUGH especially indoors considering 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz spectrum. 1.6 base stations per village is a joke compared to what Jio is doing, or maybe even Airtel…..heck I go rural in MPCG every day and I’ve found a lot more Jio BTS, small cell and repeaters just hanging around here and there compared to any other operator.

This is frankly a bit worrying if Idea is just launching 4G for the sake of putting it on paper…..

Idea has always worked under the shadow of airtel & vodafone. They never looked like a leader & did any thing innovative .

Hence idea don’t have a strong brand name & will get a beating as competition gets tough.
