    Its very very good news for Gujarat. But as far as data plan charges concerned it is not cheap. Its only drawback nowa moments. If cheaper data plan for 3G is available from BSNL then sure shot it will be truly unbeatable..let’s see who opens new “cheap 3G Data plan “. so now….Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost..

    i think 3G data war will be start after september 3G launch becoz bsnl is not going to reduce data charges till november but in vcall tariff BSNL is definately ready with a sharp sword to fight against other 3G invadars

    Great BSNL Ab apna slogan change kar lo ab samay aa gaya hai ki “BSNL BEST HAI MERE LIYE” ki jagah “BSNL BEST HAI SABKE LIYE”.
    And ‘BSNL HAI TO APNAPAN HAI’.
    And also ‘BADIYA HAI’.
