    How a company can get profit from $20 mill order to install internet infrastructure for 35 cities. It is $500 000 for one city!
    or the other way
    5000 km of lines so it is like $4 for 3 feet of lines including materials, engineering, labor and gears! Don’t forget heavy duty vehicles and guards_soldiers to protect employees in the war zone!
    Nortel will lose $100 mill on that order easily. The ratio 5:1 will be much worse than BSNL deal with $1 loss on each Dollar of revenue.
    Nortel is desperate to get anything from anyone to just show they are doing business.
