    Reliance has a big advantage that Airtel does not - Reliance Jio has nationwide 4G permission but Airtel's got it only in limited circles. Plus Reliance, being 'RELIANCE' has all the cash in the world to burn on capturing the markets. Airtel's game plan would be to capture as many people as they can and then drop the rates drastically as Reliance steps their foot in the arena.

    That's why I said 4G wars will begin in the next year. I'm not sure how the fight will be because 4G requires special hardware. 4G's success in India will be purely defined by how cheap the hardware can go.
