Till the time MTNL does not change its attitute towards customers nothing will change for them.the workers of mtnl have plenty of attitute when a customer goes to the mtnl office for a complaint my triband connection was down for nearly a month due to non availability of modem from their end and the explanation i got for the delay was replacement modem was not in stock while they had huge stock for new connections
pathetic service if any issues arise and the speed is also not upto the mark
