This move to make voice calls free would be a big loss for three of India’s biggest carriers — Airtel, Vodafone and Idea. While Ambani was announcing Jio’s plans in Mumbai today. Even Airtel’s stock was down by as much as 9% today. Airtel has more than 200 million subscribers in India and is the country’s largest carrier.
