Being an idea user myself, I am looking forward to the implications of this deal. However, the talks are still in the initial stages and as such nothing concrete can be concluded about the exact future of the deal and it's outcome.
Vodafone has been into problems ever since it made an entry into India in 2007 and now has plans to exit from its Indian operations. They have been into a tax relates tussle with the Indian government for quite long. Latest developments with the Reliance Jio launch, they have been forced to take the decision of this magnitude.
I do hope to see some improvements from the customer point of view. In any case, the Indian telecom space will consolidate for better. The combined Vodafone Idea entity will be the second largest telecom provider in India.
Live....and Let Live!
