Shameless BSNL. Nowadays their coverage is going worst. If i Travel to Bangalore – KGF. BSNL Avails From Bangalore to Bangarpet (KOLAR DISTRICT) and Ends up showing nil Signals in KGF. We People are so Much Disinterested That we Adapted for AIRTEL, IDEA, VODAFONE, RELIANCE, TATA and AIRCEL Services.
