No words… Everyone know that’s true… Only BSNL Chennai users (including me) know it’s value and how secure they felt with it! Thankfully all govt offices use bsnl! D BSNL officer in our area exchange didn’t even go to home… He and his team, worked 24*7 to ensure maximum connectivity…

Great! That would really help the congested network over there… Airtel is the market leader in TN… And this first step towards giving better connectivity is really appreciable…
