Definitely. Even if they utilize the amount they are spending on media advertisements will be enough for improving the network ! What I mean is, they need not be unscrupulous in VAS route!

I agree with you. the Private Operators especially have to improve the network wherever there is a problem and then look into VAS aspect as otherwise customers will not bother to use the services at all.
