I am of the opinion that the Internet Packs have replaced almost all the VAS offered by the Telecom Companies. The reason for this perception is very simple i.e. you get what you want at the Internet then why to spend additional money for the similar services. At Internet you get music, games, updated news (be it political, sports, or any other). It appears that the survey is done with some malafide intentions to provoke the students to spend more on those services which are far cheaper at the Internet then the Telecom Companies tariff.

Why would any student subscribe for these packs when we can find all of the things on internet and a simple data pack recharge would suffice all the needs for songs to jokes and all other entertainment.even when students don’t subscribe to vas these companies extract double by deducting the balance. Especially VODAFONE,the most idiotic company on face of earth.
