All these names tend to excite me very much these days. They are – TRAI, Airtel, Jio, etc. Ever since the launch of Reliance Jio by Mr. Mukesh Ambani, all the other telcos have got endless sleepless nights.
Airtel has not given up at any cost. We all know how costly Airtel was, but now they have slashed down their prices so that they could still be in the market. On the other hand, Airtel is constantly challenging Jio offers by scooping up rules from their rule book.
(Let’s ignore the Jio v/s other telcos fight for a while)
Call drop has always been an issue in India. Before we know more on this, let’s have a quick review of what call drop is. Call drop is when your phone call gets disconnected due to technical reason when neither of the people involved in the conversation cut the call. It is a major issue here in India and it will be the same. However, you must be well acquitted with the concept of call drop. You might not have known about the terminology.
Call drops have been very high for Jio customers. In order to call from a Reliance Jio number to any other network, the other network has to give POI (Point Of Intersection). This was not provided by the other telcos, hence Jio had such awful call quality. TRAI had given strict orders to the other carrier to give Reliance the POI. They had given them POI, but there might be still good number of call drops. Hence there maybe a chance that TRAI has taken this step because of Reliance.
We as customers are definitely on a roller coaster. TRAI has started taken quite effective steps to curb the telecom operators. Moreover, TRAI’s app also silently records the speed of your net connection and can use it to charge your network provider for not matching what they advertised. No matter what, it looks like the fate of Indian customers have finally changed!
