PD :
……..Inglish or Hinglish, they, and for that matter many in the fields, have gone bankrupt in VAS ideas !!!!!!!

Truly said. I don,t think any VAS by any operator seems essential or must have. They are charging (nowadays looting by automatic activating them) too much for nothing. Criket updates, News etc. can be received as SMS using Google’s SMS channel then why would anybody pay Rs. 30/month for useless news provided by VAS.

Tata docomo has denied by not allocating extra spectrum and even initial 4.4 Mhz start-up spectrum in delhi,the most lucrative circle and various major cities. This is the main reason for their weak network.
Hope, the matter will be resolve very soon by TRAI.

That may be a valid reason for cutting sorry figure. But now it is the duty of tatadocomo to ensure services in the circles they say “have presence” by any resorting a lawfulmeans !
