It has now emerged the Trai’s order barring both Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel from offering differentiated products in 4G postpaid plans was passed based on a complaint filed by Jio on 8 July, which alleged that Vodafone Idea’s RedX plan was discriminatory and misleading in nature. In its complaint to Trai, Jio said the said tariff plan is discriminatory in nature, which occasioned deterioration of the quality of service for one class of customers by providing priority to others and was premised on false and misleading claims being made to customers.

Jio said Vodafone Idea’s claims to offer better data speeds and priority access “were erroneous" as an operator cannot guarantee minimum speed on a wireless network and any method to provide priority access to some customers would “inevitably deteriorate the service quality available to other customers availing the same services".

In the application, Jio also said this could not be compared with wireline tariffs (fixed broadband) because, in such services, users “continue to get the promised speed, which is provided without adversely affecting any other customer."
