JIO LTE vs Vodafone LTE in Kolkata

This is not accurate Jio vs Vodafone LTE comparison. 
Tested in Kolkata - 2 different locations. 
Comparison is based on maximum speed I received on Jio LTE and Vodafone LTE network.

Coolwinks.com Review: Sunglass Bought on COD

Coolwinks Box
These days I would love to change my taste. Bit experimenting? Oh yes.

I don't shave with Gillette now, I use LetShave's products now.

Lenskart is definitely good for lens and glasses. There are some other lesser known alternative too. Coolwinks and Glassic. I tried Coolwinks, and found it is extremely cheap which made me a little skeptical. And Mouthshut reviews are mostly negative. Hence I put my order on Coolwinks by COD.

In 3 days the package was delivered in a good packing. The sunglass inside the box was intact (=not broken). It was said to be 100% UV protection giver, and I can't say that it's not.

Jio Pushes Mutation in Indian Telecom

Indian telecom was quite dull in 2015-16 until Jio stepped in and started offering free services. Entry of Jio, the ambitious telecom project by country's richhest man Mukesh Ambani has forced the Indian telecom to undergo a major reshape.

The most obvious change is merger and acquisition of telecom companies - which makes the telecom market quite smaller. If all go right, India will have only 5-6 players -
  • Reliance Jio
  • Airtel (acquisition of Telenor India, Augere Wireless, Videocon (partially) and 4G spectrum of Tikona & Aircel)
  • Vodafone-Idea (to be merged soon)
  • RCom-Aircel-SSTL
  • Tata Tele (rumor is they might merge with merged entity of RCOM-AIRCEL-SSTL)
  • BSNL/MTNL (there are chances that both PSU may merge)
Among all, Vodafone & Idea's merger seems to create strongest entity which may give real tough competition to Jio and Airtel.​ R​Com​-A​ircel​-MTS(+Tata Tele) does not seem to be in a position to create a stir in the market as their present 4G coverage is based on RCom's 850 MHz band only​ and may they extend 4G to 1800MHz band; but the super-merged entity would not have any 4G network on 2300/2500 MHz where Jio, Airtel and Vodafone-Idea are placed too firmly. ​
