TRAI has also asked both operators to give detail about their premium plans, where they are offering premium services to selected people. In fact, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has written a letter to both operators and asked about the measures they are taking for other users.

"We have been consistently recognized by international agencies as the best network in terms of speed, latency, and video experience. At the same time, we want to keep raising the bar for our postpaid customers in terms of service and responsiveness this is an ongoing effort at our end," the Airtel spokesperson was quoted by a news agency.

Similarly, Vodafone-Idea said that the company has been recognized by a global agency for its services. Furthermore, the regulator wants operators to reply within seven days.
