Mr. Mittal doesn’t care unlike Mr. Ambani. He only wants to cater to the rich.

Total 66 lakh moble numbers reduced to 117 crore.

Looks like it will continue some more time as many people continue to close additional unwanted numbers in the face of raising tarriff.

I am happy that chortel & VI has lost millions of subscribers due tariff hike. Still airtel & VI has not learn anything from jio. Both operators just focus on  profit maximization in short term while jio has much better marketing strategy.

Chortel CS is the worst. Have been on chortel for 16+ years and they have stupid policies, non helpful cs ans crappy tech stack

Recently, i got to know that 1860 is not chargeble by jio unlike chortel.
Chortel charges for everything by mocking their unlimited plans.

This was bound to happen.

Let me give an instance:
While I was in UAE:
Airtel charged 3998 INR for International roaming for 500 min incoming+ 500 min outgoing for 30 days
While, Jio charged nearly 1300 for 1000 min incoming+outgoing for 30 days.

Jio charges even less than UAE local operators. So, the first thing that I did, while returning to India was to port my 8 year old Airtel number to Jio.

Airtel was a thief and will remain a thief till it dies.

Yes, that is correct! Jio is trying to kill all its competitors. And once all are killed then the Game begins which is the real loot for which Reliance is known.

Chortel Service degraded in recent time. Preferred over jio because of service only. My yearly pack expiring aug 20. Jio service improved. Will port out punch

5 mine too, porting them out 1-by-1, of which 3 chortel and 2 Vi (including family members).

Chortel ki hadd to dekho, incoming SMS bhi band ho gaye. On top of that, I’m unable to use available balance to recharge. Whereas Vi is better than chortel, at least receiving SMS.

Remember those days, when they used to forcefully subscribe us to Gladrags model packs, comedy packs. 😁😁😁 Good old GPRS/EDGE days.

And when we called cc, they didnt even acknowledge. On the contrary, airtel cc was so rude that they used to hung up on customers. Happened with me couple of times during those good old times.

Obviously, at the current rate, telecom providers cannot survive and they are bound to increase rate. So that the service doesnt suffer.

I would prefer jio 100 times over airtel. Even VI is a little better than airtel.

I recently ported out another of my airtel postpaid number to bsnl prepaid.

Not sure about the reliability of international roaming but even in pay as you go rate, Jio looks better.

I had faced this issue severely. My airtel number was my main number and also had to carry a local UAE number. So, to make cheaper calls from Jio, I had to carry a second phone with me.

Never going back to Airtel ever again.
