      Airtel is trying so hard to get new as well as retain the existing customers but the truth is it's still not enough.

          (1) Truth is that not one compe or of Reliance Jio, and Airtel in particular, can compete with Reliance Jio on the basis of tariffs. Airtel's offers described above are all confusing. Or is that the purpose? (2) Everyone knows that a telecom company receives money in advance from prepaid subscribers (customers), for services to be offered later. That is why these companies prefer prepaid customers and hence to retain them, almost all telecom companies offer some incentive or the other to them. But Airtel wishes to be different! It is heavily advertising special offers to post paid customers! Obviously, Airtel must find new ways to woe customers.

              Yes, but even this tariff is not affordable for Airtel, thanks to the huge payouts because of the auctioned 2G/3G spectrum license fees. Going any cheaper will make Airtel and other Telcos bankrupt (Rcom is already bankrupt). If you look at it, the auction of spectrum has been a big boon for Jio as they have not bid for it. It is as if these auctions were God's gift to them get a dominant (or even monopolistic) presence in the extremely crucial and lucrative Telecom business.
