    The administration system is very poor. At first the supreme should give utmost attention to this matter. they should know how to give first preference to the customer satisfaction. Less paper work, do practical. please seek some valuable suggestions from other Telecome company or private consultation.

    Though, in our place, the new T.Exchange operator meet the customer satisfaction. I personally give thanks to him. at least, every morning at 9:30 AM.The operator always visit the sites. He check all lines and asked customers if there is any problem. he solely tried to fixed the problem at the earliest. He also knows that the superior are still in Bed. they are busy with their homework. The executives are even not interest to reply the telephone Call.

    You poor guy I feel sorry for you , you in your self satisfied daze are not even aware of the extent of your own ignorance …. question is if you don’t know or admit that you are a truly foolish, stupid, ill informed, half educated lout ( hope you understand English well) how will this (happy for you) state of things change.
    Do you have any iota of idea about the place you are talking about ? Reply with facts if you have the brains and guts to.

  • Vamsi February 4, 2010 9:45 pm

    I want to clarify couple of this here.

    1) “”High Speed WiMAX Broadband Service “”–Is this Fixed Broadband or Mobile Broadband?
    2) “”High Speed WiMAX Broadband Service “”–Is this 3G or 4G?

    My understanding:: 3G Auction(Mobile WiMAX) yet to happen. So probably you are talking about Fixed Broadband with limited download plan…Am I right?

    Anti BSNL :why do they launch services in the hills where there are no computers and mobile internet phones … come on .. launch in places where there are tech saavy people in the cities first

    Hey are you from any other planet? if you think assam is only hills with people having no idea about computers then you should visit assam first. and about knowing computers people who themselves are not fully versed ith copmuters think others to be computer illeterate. assam also has a software tech park.
