This week was an interesting one. It started off with scrutinizing Vodafone’s moves which announced to its customers that the STD charges are further dropped as the same as MTNL. Later in the day, we informed about Virgin Mobile’s weekend recharge.
M-Commerce is very nascent at this stage in India. But BPL Mobile took a bold step of introducing it to its customers which is currently in collaboration with NGPay. Now this is something interesting from Vodafone. SMS them and you get a small but useful amount of recharge balance. Scheme is called as Chhota Credit and has some conditions to be fulfilled.
We have said this too many times before that MTNL is an underdog. And the reason they lack behind other operators is their inadequate marketing campaigns. But now a campaign is running across the city which is trying to turn the tables for the government owned operator. A new entrant in the market for international SIM cards is V-Tel. They claim to save up to 95% on roaming charges.
The tussle with the government and RIM is still not solved. In the latest release, they have denied to share the encryption key giving the deserved security to its customers. Brave move, I must say! We all know that Virgin Mobile is the only operator which pays you for incoming. So why not profit from it? Check out our analysis to earn yourself a decent income.
Reliance has announced their lifetime incoming plan will also be available for Rs. 299. And lastly it is BSNL who is ‘begging’ the government to allot free spectrum for WiMAX while the rest of the pack will play a hefty amount. This will cause a furor, if government allots them.
