TATA b***** chors A** *****!! They are NO competition to MTNL.

Talking about Airtel. Well Airtel is SO slow in deploying it network
that I dont think they'll be even penetrating 0.00000000001% of Mumbai
in the next 100 years. The place where I live, Airtel has been "trying"
to wire up for the past 2.5 years. Yes people 2.5 years of which last 2
years I've been waiting for them to wire up my building...

Dont even get me started about Reliance and them stringing their fibre
on the street light poles.

Even if Ambani, Ratan Tata and Mittal come together and apply 100% of
their resources in competing with MTNL I dont think they'll even get 100
new subscribers. Heh...

Yup but their speed seriously suck. Not to mention the downtime.
Pathetic after sales. Faulty billing. And the list goes on =P

Read my first argument. Airtel stands no chance against these sarkari
babus ;)
