And behind my TV and phone. Also behind my car insurance. And home insurance. Gosh. The freaks are everywhere.

heh. i have a tata aig policy. and my fiat car is serviced at their service station. i use a tata indicom postpaid connection. my mom probably uses tata salt. so i guess my life is also pretty much dependent upon them in a lot of ways.

And that's one thing that perplexes me. As a conglomerate, one or more of their products are present in pretty much every household in India. Why then, inspite of being in the volumes segment, not doing well?

i guess thats because the general perception is that tata companies work like government offices. i have heard stories from people who have worked in TCS that it is pretty much like that. too much politics by senior guys to maintain their positions and authority... my experience with tata dealers was pretty similar. especially at the dealership which was pretty old. employees were not really interested in generating sales. i went to both tata dealers in gurgaon while hunting for the fiat linea. one was dhingra motors which was old school. the other one was abs motors which was pretty much a new entity. dhingra motor guys never called me back to ask about my decision. i got 3 calls from abs motors guys.

Is this any better than the Tata Wimax. Wimax might not be bad in itself but the low speeds and frequent disconnections have frustrated me :wall:.Since Airtel is not available in my place, I would like to know if this wireline service is any better. I want decent download speeds and the connection should be stable...Do let me know.

Airtel is not availiable in all areas in Bangalore, Like some areas in Marathalli.If you have some patience you can go for Reliance Broadnet (wired one), the speed is good, but the real problem comes when the line goes down.
