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.

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.

Keshav Jha : <BLOCKQUOTE cite="#Mera manana hai ki defects ko point out karne se hi sudhaar hota hai. You are right friend. BSNL is best among all but its 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… Read more »

Please try to know a little bit hindi also because we are living in Hindustan. We should know a lot of languages but we should feel proud to use hindi. India is raising it’s voice in United Nations to certify hindi as a international language so support India.
