Even though Bsnl’s most revenue scoring circle is Kerala, They are not ready to improve 3g and 2g coverage in Kerala rural areas. Whereas Idea topplayer in thus region,covers almost all rural and urban under 3g.

Comparing private and public companies idea infrastructure improves day to day where as Bsnl is only interested or concentrated mostly in Urban areas

2000 new 3g towers are promised in state in accordance with digital India project . Hope it covers our location Kottayam, Karukachal area , Palamattom locality

These private operators (AVOID Group) bribed BSNL higher officials making them to sit idle -Not letting them to improve their n/w- these days. Everybody knows this fact. So called AVOID group lovers, stop commenting here like a Gentlemen. First tell your operators not to bribe them. Ask them to play a fair game. Then see who wins the race. BSNL started it’s 3G services in 2010 and hasn’t shown any improvement from then. But now in 2015, BSNL started shifting gears. It has improved it’s 3G n/w in Chittoor Dist- AP alot. I’m getting decent speeds of 1-1.5 MBps at… Read more »

BSNL is moving ahead of its old ideologies. So it has started a progress path. They have done incoming free while in roaming. Really a good move. Hope they will continue this. All the BEST BSNL !!

Whatever people may say, thanks to BSNL ; I am being able to enjoy 3G at a very minimal rate. BSNL may not be the best but it is certainly far better than others.

I’m using BSNL for data and Airtel for voice. I’m satisfied with both of them

It is foolish and total waste of time if you go for data usage with BSNL bcoz their 3G technology wise and capacity wise worser than even 2G by the private players. What is the use if we can’t use data when required but with Idea like companies Range and Data Speed and Uptime of data connections are far better compared to BSNL.
In short, BSNL is cheating by telling their net connection is cheaper and is providing namesake 3g of 2g quality with far worse call drop too.
Why use if we can’t use?

Dear Jacob,BSNL is now only at an infant stage of growth after Ravi Shanker Prasad has assumed the Telecom minister’s post. It definitely takes sometime to heal the wounds of BSNL created by previous looting,corrupted and inefficient Congress government!!!!so we have to keep patience…

Whow! During my visits in the past to Pune I felt that BSNL network was not upto the mark especially in the Savitribai Phule Pune University campus and its surroundings. Good to learn that the network is in a significantly better state with decent speeds.
