Hi friends, bsnl chairman intentionally doing this, they want customers to change bsnl network to others, they are taking gift from private service providers to provide ridiculous plans, from bsnl, they are getting salary, from other network gift. We only suffer by changing network, I was using bsnl from last 5 years. I stopped because of poor network in cities like Chennai and harassing plans. Bye bye bsnl. PSU going to merge with some private company.
