ahammad :
Ladline to landline speaking is the best way of telephonic communication since its clarity is not comparable.

Landline connection in home was disconnected because of the noise while making calls, there was frequent cross connections and most of the time it remained dead.
All this happen even after repeated complaints. Lodging a complain was painful because nobody lifts the handset at the other end or sometimes they simply keep the handset aside.


Only bsnl could offer such an attractive one. Ladline to landline speaking is the best way of telephonic communication since its clarity is not comparable. Private operators are not interested in providing landline connections. They want to make more profit from less investment. Consequently, entire private operators in the country hold just 16% of landline market share whereas BSNL and MTNL hold 75% and 9% resply.
