Several BSNL users complain about the lack of 4G services and the ability to consume 3GB data per day. However, BSNL is preparing for 4G services launch and it will happen during the first week of March if DoT manages to allocate the promised 4G spectrum. As part of the revival package, BSNL employees opted for VRS package and the mass retirement happened at the end of January. So the next step for the telco would be launching 4G services to the customers in every circle.
