It’s love all around! They may fight for supremacy, they may insult one another, and they are one of the biggest rivals. Still, in between them, there is love. During this Valentine’s Day, we got a glimpse of the love relationship between our biggest telcos.
Started first by the new entrant in the Indian telecom sector, Reliance Jio with a cute Valentine’s wish for India’s top three telcos Airtel, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular. Well, we can dig deep into the inner meaning of this tweet, still need to appreciate Jio for the friendly gesture.

Apart from the love business, Reliance Jio is having a dispute with top telcos Airtel, Vodafone and Idea over the points of interconnection (PoI). The issue got further to a new level when Airtel filling a complaint with Competition Commission of India (CCI) accusing Jio of ‘creating a monopoly for itself’ with its ‘predatory pricing’.
