BSNL truly deserve to be in loss! Their services are for name sake, they work but if anything goes wrong the customer care officials just give foolish looks on asking to solve it..

It's really bad for any PSU and Govt. too. I agree with sujoyp. I have a very bitter experience with BSNL. God knows what will happen with this PSU.

BSNL currently has the best internet plan for high downloaders like me, show me any isp here that provides BSNL like speeds(2 MBps for 6hrs each day) and without any kind of fup limits, and I'll take back my word. The customer care does suck but the rates and no FUP are just unbelievable, if BSNL goes out or something be happy with your 40GB fup from other isps, also the night unlimited is very good and it does not interfere with my normal browsing schedule, so their plans are actually better, its just a lack of marketing and internal conspiracy that's doing this to bsnl, just like all other government firms, also the government is just too careless when selecting employees, when hiring they try to measure the candidates academic capabilities only, unlike private companies that try to measure their communication and technical skills as well.

I have BSNL BB for 7 years now, I am impressed by the internet service of them however their customer cell absolutely sucks, whenever I call their customer care for anything the poor behavior and kiddish comments makes me feel I am in stone age still. They were only the one Govt. company who started with the maximum possible capital. So this loss is normal unless they hire some good skilled (Non academically) person as tkin said pretty well.

the said ammount should have been profits..anyway their plans are best but still win a lot customers by changing the Rs.499 plan to Rs.250 as speed offered in dat plan is only 256 kbps hence Rs.250 for a low speed unlimited connection is only justified..

Btw all other plans are good especially Rs.900 4mbps one

there is no need to worry. It's run by government and no matter what the loss is, it will never cease to exist.

I doubt they will let it go private. Last time they tried for MTNL, the workers went on a strike. Big PITA. Basically it is the machinery of our government. When the cellular cloud started BSNL was the leader. Heck they all ready had a network -- for runners like Airtel / Hutch had to start from scratch, now see where they are. Even the CC of the private players is just as bad. Any one tried the 'english; option with Tata Indicom. You will faint.

Not to mention the awful prices, BSNL was first and still the only company in India to provide a good speed/limit vs cost plan(Home 500), I download about 120GB per month, still to find any from other companies, airtel has good plan but the worst FUP ever(if BSNL goes FUP, I'll go nuts). BSNL is sufferer of conspiracy and bad hire tactics.
