The three-day event, which starts today, Vodafone Chief Vittorio Colao will not be present in person, but will join other telecom leaders for the inaugural session through video link. Mr Ambani delivered the opening speech and Mr Mittal is one of the speakers. Reliance Jio, which entered the telecom market about a
