I think this is like a cheap trap to make costly expenses after subscribing.

Unless BSNL improves its customer care service there won’t be any long term gains.. Post the hikes in bb tariffs the per month rate between BSNL & other private operators has become negligible..

Esp the tariffs of Tikona, You Broadband & ACT Fibernet are attractive when compared to BSNL (in Chennai)..
