Very bad service, we were having only hope on bsnl landline but that also lost connectivity from 3rd Dec. We weren’t able to use the paid service only what’s the use of free service given. We suffered a lot because of this. Even after one week also, till today service is not resumed. Also we don’t get rebate for a single day. Not at all satisfied with the service provided.
