Anyway, theres nothing false about Reliance's advertising. The plan *is*
unlimited. Its just that you have to pay beyond a certain usage. They're
not going to cut you off. They will simply charge you for the extra
usage. ( Check out my other reply to Saswata. It should make this clear ).
They distinguish between a "Flat Rate" plan and "Unlimited plan". It
also depends on what definition they use. Their definition of unlimited
isn't misleading or wrong. Also, they have clearly marked it and
specified it in the fine print so its a losing case for the consumer.
Lastly, theres a difference between - Unlimited, Unmetered, Flat fee /
What you can pull them up for is putting *any* limits at all. As I see
it they are creating an artificial scarcity of resources. We can show
the court how much international bandwidth these people have and how
much the country's infrastructure supports. They're hoarding it and
selling it and at an artificially high price. If we convince the courts
that theres plenty for everybody and yet they're showing as if theres
scarcity we can not only get higher speeds, unmetered bandwidth but
maybe get the ISPs to compensate ( monetarily ) to the long time consumers.
I remember clearly that TRAI mandated a 70% cut in leased lines a while
back and that had ZERO impact on the costs for the end consumer. All it
did was fattened up the grossly high profit margins of these money
grabbing telcos. Atleast I didnt see a 70% cut in my broadband bill.
