    ahammad :
    Ladline to landline speaking is the best way of telephonic communication since its clarity is not comparable.

    Landline connection in home was disconnected because of the noise while making calls, there was frequent cross connections and most of the time it remained dead.
    All this happen even after repeated complaints. Lodging a complain was painful because nobody lifts the handset at the other end or sometimes they simply keep the handset aside.

  • ahammad December 2, 2010 8:56 pm

    Only bsnl could offer such an attractive one. Ladline to landline speaking is the best way of telephonic communication since its clarity is not comparable. Private operators are not interested in providing landline connections. They want to make more profit from less investment. Consequently, entire private operators in the country hold just 16% of landline market share whereas BSNL and MTNL hold 75% and 9% resply.

    You are right friend. BSNL is best among all but its not so good. It’s like a figure among cyphers. All is well but services, for which they are in market, are not so good. Here if you post any comment against BSNL some blind follower oppose it instantly without any fact. If we don’t point out any defect, how will be corrected it. If anyone will experience what is the real mean by any ‘SERVICE’, he will see many defects in BSNL. We don’t need to go outside India to experience this. Just go Kerala and see it.

    BSNL landline aur WLL se offnet mobile calls local/std 80p-120p per minute hai. Kya tum use karoge iska? Aur haan BSNL ke subscriber agar hum jaise sochne walon ko munh tod jawab de to mujhe bahut khushi hogi. I am a fan of BSNL & 5 year old mobile customer. Delhi mein rahte huye bhi maine BSNL ko nahin chhoda hai. Lekin mera manana hai ki defects ko point out karne se hin sudhaar hota hai.

    NO BIG DEAL…

    Landline Subscribers : 35.77 Million ( 75% will be BSNL only)

    They are charging you 80 paise / 3 mins, within their network. All these days they royally collected Rs. 1.20 per min.

    For Wireless / Mobile users its Re. 1 per min, which is very high compare to all other operators who are between 50 ps to 60 ps per min

    Take any WLL Land line like Tata Indicom, they are charging 25 paise first min & Rs. 2 for 5 Mins from long time whether its landline or mobile. Their basic plan of Rs. 150 per month is 50ps / min ( Local & STD)

    Let me also include..landline nos are falling & Mobile nos are growing on month on month..

    No govt can’t sell the stakes. Because the employees unions decides the any action from govt about stake selling, they will start strike.

    But trio of Manmohan Singh, Montek Singh Ahluwalia and Sam Pitroda see privatization as the only solution of any problem in PSU.

    Let us wait and see

    A committee headed by Sam Pitroda for the revival of BSNL has recommended to sell 35% stake in BSNL. Hope government will not do so in the interest of PEOPLE OF INDIA.

    After A. Raja’s exit as Telecommunication minister efforts have started to revive state-run telecom service provider BSNL. The Board for Reconstruction of Public Sector Enterprises (BRPSE) has decided suo-moto to formulate a revival plan for the loss making telecom company. BSNL had incurred a loss of Rs. 183 million in the financial year 2009-10, the first time since its inception 10 years ago. Now we hope BSNL will revive itself and will change the scenario of telecom sector.

    BSNL made losses due to reliance. Reliance masked international calls as local on bsnl netwk by tampering with CLI. AS PER TIMES OF INDIA 30 NOV 10

  • dskushwaha December 1, 2010 12:49 pm

    I meant calls to mobile are too expensive.

  • dskushwaha December 1, 2010 12:48 pm

    Very late.. Most of the Landline customers have already unsubscribed their connections for better, cheaper prepaid mobiles. Landline connections should be given at zero rental/ prepaid with lifetime validity & full TT.
    Still calls to are too expensive.

  • Firstonnet December 1, 2010 12:25 pm

    Great offer for all BSNL landline subs who really like to voice clarity, sureshot connection whom want to talk, no network busy,no out of coverage problem, no switch off issue, no prblm if ur area’s mains failure. Anytime u can make a call i.e landline. 24/7 online. All these facility and call rates are cheaper @just 80p/ 3mins superb, unexpected rates offered by BSNL. Go grab it for ur home, office before ur local area exchange lines gets full.

  • Ajay December 1, 2010 12:15 pm

    A fantastic offer to become no1 in Landline, Airtel, Reliance subs leave pvt ops n switch to BSNL for cheaper call rates and affordable wired broadband plans. Cheaper than mobile services. Mobile 1p/sec n landline 80p/3 min affordable with better voice clarity no network busy, congestion etc prblem
