AFAIK, WORD OF MOUTH.

NOT found any official Advertisement to counter for.

Low Bandwidth is still a bandwidth, implying low QOS, but with coverage. So with more FOC marketing, traction becomes proportionately more, probably huge (exponentially). Now with critical mass in hand, atleast a few % of mass would migrate to LTE or WiMaX (4G) communication that yields profit. However that is only a side effect.

With majority in their side, Neutrality may be dissolved. For instance, if Airtel offers FOC bandwidth for only few services/apps.
