One of the most well known Telecom entities of India, Bharti Tele-Ventures (BTVL) has announced big plans about expanding their position in the Indian market. The company is aiming to invest around USD 1 Billion in the various services under the Airtel brand name during the current financial year. This is around a 15% improvement over the investment BTVL made last year, which came to around USD 875 million.

Majority of this investment from the company would go into expanding the mobile business, which in return brings the company its maximum revenues. Most of the customers of the company are related to this stream of Bharti’s business line. More and more cities are going mobile overtaking the number of local fixed line connections. This gives the company a huge opportunity to expand their customer base.

Ya just read it today in the newspaper.Wats the point of wiring (landline&BB) up new cities when u dont even cover a single city properly?They advertise on the website that the connection is available in ur area... when u call them up u get the reply ...." no sir not covered yet..still expanding"In one locality they even put up hoardings before even properly wiring it up...one disguntled customer's letter was published regarding this in the Hindu.

actually they are targeting the areas where BSNL is suffering from delivery of service. the sector i lived in faridabad, BSNL had exausted all their connections so everyone took airtel! same here in gurgaon. getting a bsnl connection is tougher. airtel guys do it in a snap.

it is actually the best. they are just complaining abt airtel mentioning that they serve a particular area and they later say that the particular gali muhalla is not covered. now they cannot actually give you house numbers in advertisements where they can actually provide a connection?
