    Well we are not in the lowest price category users in teh world, for example teh currency to usage rati for $ v/s Rupee was around 5 times..
    so here are at&t plans, which is the highest in US
    ATandT-calling rates2.jpg

    So converting that to price parity we get plans of Rs.350 to Rs.100 for Unlimited callings !! with no roaming charges..

    the companies are all looting us Indians and making money and then saying that the rates are lowest..
    tehy cannot just convert Rupee to Dollar, coz that is not right formula..
    they have to use the price parity ratio which they never do.
    this spreads misinformation.

    See, parity can't be used here, it is just unfair. I understand that quality of service is no great in India, but you have to understand the operating costs are still quite the same.
