Vodafone India Responds To DOT Decision To Shutdown 3G Roaming

Vodafone India Responds To DOT Decision To Shutdown 3G RoamingDoT has asked Airtel, Vodafone and Idea  to stop its 3G Roaming via ICRA in non 3G circles with in 24 hours and have given a deadline which will end on Saturday 3 PM.

Now Vodafone India respond to the same and issued a official statement stating “We received the notification from DoT after normal business hours today. “We think that this decision of DoT is completely unreasonable.”

“As stated earlier, the 3G roaming agreements that Vodafone has entered into with other operators are in complete compliance with all Government rules and regulations and this issue was specifically clarified by DoT before the 3G auction was held. Based on this clarification, we went into the auction in good faith.”

“Now, to completely reverse the stand, is totally irrational. It is going to affect millions of our customers adversely and we think it is a retrograde step by DoT. Also, giving a notice at this late hour with courts having gone on vacation from this afternoon is totally arbitrary.   We will take suitable course of action to protect our  and our consumers’ interest.”

So as a consumer what’s your take on this issue ?

No use. Corrupt Govt. Govt. should ban all the operators… Give way only for 5 companies maximum.. Operators cannot even get what they invested in spectrum for serving stingy people and money sucking govt. Only when govt. throws out all other operators incapable, and lowers the spectrum rates, people can use 3G..But is that going to happen??
