Telcos must milk data, not voice: Sibal

though he did not use the term milk.

Four days after announcing that telcos should not charge for roaming services, telecom minister Kapil Sibal said voice calls should be made free, too. “I personally believe that charging for voice is a tax on talking to people,” Sibal said while speaking at the CII broadband summit in New Delhi on Friday.

i guess our government's philosophy is that people who can pay should pay a whole lot more.

Is the buddhaa gone fully mad or what?

At present, GSM operators such as Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and Aircel get about 10-12 per cent of their revenues from the roaming services, amounting to Rs 10,000-Rs 13,000 crore.

They will probably make up the loss by implementing even more ridiculous fup's on broadband customers. Looters like Mittals and Ambanis won't pay the loss from their pockets :p

i thoguht thats the way to go for telecom operators, but i doubt it will be successful very few people use data on their mobile in rural area where as voice has nice penetration.
