There was a drop in the quality of the MTNL network during the course of the last month, however, things seem to have come back to the situations prior to last month’s deterioration. I agree my BSNL number experiences call issues in the Karol Bagh region, it gets aggravated as one moves into mohallas away from the main arterial roads. I still feel though that the MTNL network in 2016 is way better than in 2010. The issue remains in providing H+ speeds and a functional 2G data network. I am yet to meet a BSNL or MTNL Dolphin user… Read more »

S Gopal, MTNL SMS Sending Server has collapsed since 12th Evening and still not repaired. Don’t know when it will be set right. The Tower Problem is GSM Signals in 1800 mHz Band cannot penetrate thick walls and reach sealed rooms, Otherwise the Voice Network is perfect on the road. But SMS failure has happened for the 1st time in a decade. This did not happen even in UPA Regime. In fact MTNL was the best in sending and receiving SMS. In less than 10 seconds, SMS Sent and delivery confirmation received. I have to use a Selfie Stick on… Read more »

Sri S Gopal, Finally after much prevailing on the GM Wireless Service BTS a BTS Engineer came to my home from MTNL Karol Bagh Exchange and was shocked to see Zero Signal in my Handsets. He then checked his own and was further shocked to see 0 signal in both his feature phone and smart phone. He said this problem was a test of his knowledge and career as to how signal is zero within 1/2 kms from BTS Karol Bagh inside closed room. So at least MTNL has admitted and acknowledged the problem and trying to solve it.

Congratulations to you for managing to bring the elusive GSM BTS Engineer of MTNL to your locality.

Hope after acknowledging the issue at hand they will resolve the issue thereby you do not need to use your gymnastic skills for what should be a simple task of receiving an OTP.

It is commendable on your part to be able to use unique techniques to obtain OTP. Seems the issues that you face are chronic and the quality of service has deteriorated as time has gone by. True, MTNL’s base is abysmally low, how they managed to reach such figures is amazing and worth a detailed study as BSNL although lagging behind in all circles still manages to have have a healthier share of the market than MTNL does in Delhi or Mumbai. The inability of MTNL Dolphin and BSNL CellOne becoming one with the only difference being the brand name… Read more »


when it is MTNL even lord vishwaakarma would have difficulity; so also pray to lord varun ,indra(for sky ,rain) lord vishnu ganesha and above all to maa laxmi for your balance


What’s the use of content partnership when their broadband service quality is so poor and tariffs so high? When you watch movies by streaming on such platforms it consumes a high amount of data and would burn away the pre FUP quota in no time, these things work best with no FUP plan and the true unlimited plan of MTNL is unaffordable.
At least for Mumbai users I would suggest Hathway infinite 2 Mbps plan which is true unlimited and costs less than 950 a month inclusive of taxes and unlike MTNL it gives the complete 2 Mbps to every user.
