if same speed remains after 15 Aug i can say the newly merged entity won’t run long. Jio and Airtel will be the only operators of future in India. my family was using 3 idea numbers going for porting out tomorrow.

I can understand your sentiments but it will surely not impove before 15th Aug. they both will be busy till 2-3 months in initial thrust of merger activity only after that they will wake up as to what needs to be done in congested network areas. This is my assumption, it may take even longer before they get onto table to discuss.

Still they want to discuss? They must be mad. On what kind of conditions they did this merger? Absolutely disgraceful. I would slap their network management team.Get in as network consultant,give me miminal fees and you will be better than Airtel in one and half years.

Idea has stated today that a matter of priority is to redeploy overlapping cell sites. Coverage first, capacity later.

I think it’s a justified strategy.

Coverage is already great in their leadship circles. What is they going to do? Pune is literally choked in City area. In rural area,Idea works like charm even though users are in same amount.


Wait some time friend…

Punjab has 10Mhz of band 8,14Mhz in band 3, 20Mhz in band 40,5Mhz in band 1. If they can allot 4Mhz for 2G on band 3 and convert everything else on 4G VoLTE,they can increase ARPU in their circle. Only thing Avoid should do to compete with Jio. Hold on to our leadership circles through attractive offers. I hope Vodafone-Idea does the same.
