Unethical use of CellInfo Display — Cheap Marketing Ploy by Airtel
The other day I had a trip from Chengalput to Pazhaya Seevaram Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple en route Kanchipuram. Since it is a little out of city, I just thought I can try to make use of CellInfo to see if the place has arrived by the place name that is being displayed. While my BSNL CellOne properly displayed the place (tower) names, Airtel seems to deploying a cheap marketing ploy of advertising a 3 INR music calls advertisements through CellInfo display.
I have been observing this attitude of Airtel during my Sabarimala trip too. The whole of Palani to Trichy, Airtel Tamil Nadu was just showing these 3 INR music call advertisements through CellInfo display.
Would telephone operators in India understand the ethics of advertising and stop misusing the CellInfo features for their cheap profit-making initiatives?
