The competition between telecom giants is getting intense day by day. Each network provider is offering lucrative offers to customers, in a bid to woo them. However, in this process, they have resorted to some violations too, for which HEAVY PENALTIES are imposed.
Yes, the sufferers of this penalty are none other than Airtel, Vodafone and Idea, Jio’s rivals. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has suggested a joint penalty of 3,050 crores on them because they have not given proper interconnection points to Jio, thereby violating the rules of the Telcos’ act. Wondering what these interconnect points are? Well, these are points that are needed for making voice calls from one network to the other i.e. Voice calls made from Jio to Airtel, Vodafone and Idea.
It seems this was a strategy to beat Jio in the competition, but it is against public interests. Obviously, people wouldn’t prefer Jio if they aren’t able to make calls to other networks.
