I cant belive it...BSNL posted that its 3g subscriber base crossed 20lakh
and u r telling it got loss...mmm strange...is it scam again somewhere
absolutely correct man!!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.
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.^^
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.
