@ P ROY …. use AIRTEL BROADBAND …. get speeds what you promise!!

>> BSNL is the worst internet provider, I have ever had. Main problems are:-
a) Link unstability
b) Lower internet speeds in comparison to other ISP’s.
c) Bandwidth speed is much less then promised (ex: for 4mbps to 500 kbps)

Broadband is okaya if it would be appied in all places coz other telecom operators are getting more clever they are upragrading their system everytime though they are taking a longer time but they are giving good speed wid good plans if the same would be continued i assure that BSNL would lost its 50% coustomers unsatified due to the pricing till September 2012….
