Qtel leads four to Vodafone’s three, i.e., four Vodafone customers switched to QTel, and three QTel customers switched to Vodafone.
The coming weeks should see aggressive marketing campaign from both providers.
Qtel fired the first salvo today on social media, with this tweet.
From today, those of us who wish to change service providers without changing mobile numbers can do so now. All dues with the current service provider has to be settled before switching to another provider.
