India's largest telecommunication company, state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is in loss, and tring hard to improve its financial status by following top private players like Airtel, Vodafone and Idea. BSNL took some moves which are never going to be popular among subscribers - charging Rs 100 for 2G SIM replacement (that's probably highest among mobile operator), Blackout days extended to voice calls along with SMS (Idea and Airtel are doing this), no bundled SMS on SMS packs.
Now BSNL, which is India's largest broadband service provider has revised its all broadband combo plans. With the growth of mobile, BSNL and other players' landline services take a negative growth, and this trend is seen across the globe.
With BSNL's new revision all broadband combo plans which were offering broadband services along with some free calls to any network (at different pulse, may be), are now offering free calls to BSNL network only. To make calls to other networks you will be charged seperately.
Already BSNL's broadband services are getting competition from local players like Beam in Hyderabad, Alliance, Meghbela, Wishnet at Kolkata. Interestingly best broadband tariff are available with MTNL, BSNL's sister serving in Delhi and Mumbai. I think it's best for BSNL to delink landline and ADSL broadband and provide FTTH at an affordable price.
