Bharti Tele Ventures Limited Joint Managing Director Rajan Bharti Mittal said in a statement today that they plan to introduce wireless broadband technology in Eastern India. They believe that the market has huge investment potential and plans to take on the emerging industries in the region.

Well Max bhai Eastren India will be a testing sector for Wi-Max! After finishing the testing they will sure expand it to all over India! Hmmm.....wonder if Airtel is planning to invest the Newly purchased SEA-ME-WE-4 International Bandwidth on Wi-Max or is Airtel gonna upgrade the esisting network? :unsure:Lets hope that Airtel upgrades its existing lines and then step into a new technology! Dunno wht Mr.Mittal is planning to do! :p

Sometime back I had mentioned in one of the posts that true broadband penetration in Indian can only happen through the WI-Max way- "Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access way" (mobile telephony is the best example).... It is just impossible otherwise to reach smaller towns and remote areas.... maintaining existing Internet infrastructure in our cities is difficult (rains, constant digging by various authorities and civic bodies, also the costs involved in laying and maintaining the cables etc). Through WI-Max you can take broadband to any part of the city, and hope that would solves the problem of all those who currently want Airtel but can't seem to get it. But I doubt they would use eastern India as a testing base, why not Southern? Northern, or Western for that matter? where the computer penetration is more. Just imagine being able to access broadband internet on the move, at any given location….endless opportunities! Hope WI-Max is for real man.Mr. Mittal is probably planning to buy the next Rolls Royce, or a nice mansion on some island…. I guess!

With EPS of 5.14 it would be difficult to find a sector better then telecom.

He still owns part of a company where people are waiting for services to come in their area. In other sectors companies have to wait for customers.

What about "more profitable" part.Have a look at companies in Agro field (data is public and available with router/bse/nse). Find AT LEAST one company in India with that kind of Market Cap and EPS.

since when did visionary people started innovating into newer fields looking at the failures of others? 10 years ago, who would have thought india would BE THE most competitive mobile market in the world when Airtel started its operations. Or who would have thought that Airtel would become so big? statistics are just that statistics. if you have a vision to change something, you need to have the guts to do that. bharti did it to telecom in india, it might make agriculture hot as well.
