However, he added that telecom operators will continue with their efforts to improve their services to resolve the problem of call drops.”Inspite of the fact that this judgement has come, operators’ efforts to improve services to ensure that calls do not drop will continue because private operators want that customers should be provided with quality services,” Bali said, adding that telecom operators were willing to spend on improving infrastructure.
