You should not join the competitor company .

The agreement is sacrosanct and you are obligated to abide by it.

If you violate the agreement then your erstwhile employer may sue you for breach of contract.

In the vent you join competitor, your ex employer will file suit for damages against you and also seek to obtain injunction restraining you form joining your competitor
