Airtel Looks Stable ..
Now what they have to do is increases the network coverage to each n every corner of India and lower the internet package price in future similar to jio or better than that .

If the same positive attitude would have adopted by Airtel and other Avoid operators in the past, today we wouldn’t criticizing them and eagerly waiting for Jio launch. Their first priority is monopoly and higher profits. Airtel got about six years to improve network and also they are using proven technology unlike Jio is betting on Volte and newer and undeveloped ecosystem. If they are improving network now that means “lato me bhoot baato se nahi mante.Use to Jio chahiye.

Hopefully from August onwards we will find Jio on the top as Jio is also a member of COAI.
