Why is this route busy?

Ever so often, I call up someone who belongs to "another" network from my phone. Ever so often, I get a reply that says "This route is busy. Please try again later" or its equivalent? This used to happen in the old era of the single telephone provider especially on the inter state routes and I remember one "workaround" was to type the number and add zeroes at the end. But even after our big telecom revolution, routes are busy.

Why? Why dont the network operators fix it? (This has something to do with traffic from one network to another network - and the operators are looking elsewhere, into their own networks).
