BSNL is in a terrible financial position now. Yes, I know the private operators have more debt, but please check the news. Even the employees haven’t got their salaries. Towers are being switched off in many places. I doubt whether they’ll even want to give connection now, considering that they usually do not feel like giving connections!


BSNL should give 90 days time to customers to port out if they are seriously considering to terminate their services.


No they are not going to close


BSNL should also offer to refund prepaid balance…..and not like Reliance the company which ditched their customers and eat us the balance talk time…

My BSNL broadband connection has been down for almost a week and calls to the exchange are going unanswered. Even the tower in my locality has been shut down and now I’m barely getting 2 bars of 2G. Right now I’m just waiting for 90 days to be over so that I can port out. I’ll probably have to switch broadband as well, if this continues.
