Before this report
Reliance Jio has challenged Airtel’s advertisement campaign in which the telecom major claimed to be “officially” fastest network in the country. The Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) found the ad claiming Airtel to be “officially” fastest network as misleading and asked the company to modify or withdraw the commercial by April 11 to which the company complied.
