The war between Airtel and Jio has intensifeid!
Airtel has been told to stop its advertisement wherein the company claims to provide the fastest 4G Network. The Advertising Standards Council of India’s order came after Reliance Jio approached the authority saying that Airtel’s claim of being “officially the fastest network” is totally “misleading”.
The ACSI has asked now Airtel to either come up with a modification or withdraw the TVC by by 11th April 2017.
The Mukesh Ambani-led telecom company claimed that Ookla, the owner of Speedtest mobile app, was charging money for giving such awards to telecom companies. Jio said it was approached by ookla for the same awards for the very quarter it issued the certificate of “fastest mobile network” to Bharti Airtel.
Now, what do we get as consumer out of this development? A better service free from false claims, perhaps!
