For the use of Micro sim, BSNL is charging Rs. 600.00 per month for the use of 6 GB. One may not require 6 GB in a month. Can the BSNL think of something around Rs. 300.00 per month for the use of say 3 GB? Then persons like me can make use of the facilities offered by BSNL.

Only BSNL can offer this much low wireless 3G pricing as 3G needs not only spectrum but also bandwidth upto cell tower. BSNL towers 90% connected throught Optical Fiber(OFC) and they can carry theoretically unlimited bandwidth. private players still using Microwave communication between cell towers. Microwave technology is having very limited bandwidth comparing to OFC. For private companies upgrading the infrastructure needs lots of money. So they cant reduce the tariffs below a point….

Using BSNL 3G connection any one can use 3G all over india(including Mumbai and Delhi) No other private player have this “all india roaming agreement”.

Unimaginable pricing …

BSNL/MTNL sharing arrangements on 3G are not in place. Also tariffs are not harmonised understandably due to high spectrum charges paid for 3G, but this needs to be worked out sooner than later. Dunno how the EVDO experience on BSNL is, but their tariffs on EVDO are certainly not the lowest. If current trends on handsets are anything to go by, people might use dual technology to use CDMA EVDO for data and 3G/GSM for voice deriving the best price performance ratio.

@poorva boria
Poorva Let us know your exact problem if you are old subcriber of BSNL. Let us send your bad, very bad, extremely bad experience with BSNL. Kindly send your details to 09869347070. R u from Gujarat circle? As per my knowledge BSNL have strong network coverage of GSM & UMTS equipped with 7.2mbps & they are in the process of upgrading to 21.1mbps. We are eagerly awaiting to know th fact. We know tht you are never be a subcriber of BSNL. you are a subscriber of Vodafone. world.
