BSNL best for 2G


BSNL’s numbers in paper is very good.
But reality is its VLR of Kerala is lowest among all major operators except aircel. It’s around 70% as per trai data which means around 1/3 customers are inactive.
One of the important reason for non Penetration by private operators is that its majority area are terrain which required lot of investment to lay cable and to install towers.

But for BSNL its network installed long long ago, so its showing better performance than others
