    i am currently using broadband unlimitrd plan.. bt i disappointed by the speed which bsnl providing us. and the services of bsnl are very poor. they are just making fool to customer by saying the speed is 512 kbps. bt in reality we are getting 10,20,30 kbps. but we are paying for 512 kbps. i have never seen the poor service as the bsnl provide.

    • vishal - abohar October 27, 2015 10:23 am

      actually kbps and kBps are two different terms. What bsnl says 512 kbps is actually 64 kBps.
      1byte= 8bits

    IT is true wimax provides fast speed but only to fortunate user else it is having great snail pace which we are facing in Banswara, Rajasthan.

    No, Wimax can’t be used on wifi enabled mobile phone. Lately, some companies are (thinking of) introducing wimax enabled handsets.

    sanjay bafna today my friend who lives in banglore told tat BSNL3g is not yet launched for the public.. still its under trail & error. he told me even though they have sold simcards but still they cant access 3G.. is it true?

    NO its not TRUE,I have two friends in Bangalore using 3G services their and we had live chat by Video call service.
    As of now BSNL has 30,000 Active 3G customers in Bangalore (including 8000 New subscribers).

    When i publish any news on TelecomTalk, I always cross check services/tariff/content whatever in the news with my own way.

    For your reference BSNL Bangalore 3G Coverage MAP is here

    So It might be possible that Your Friend Making you April Fool or spreading rummer over BSNL 3G.

    • Jayan December 27, 2013 12:39 pm

      We are using WiMax plan 3500. but totally disappointed with the speed and service. I think BSNL = Bharat Satya Nash Limited. Dismis all employees and hand over task to private sector.
