Hmmm so you want the bsnl people to leave all their work and fix your tower instantly? If there was a huge train fall there might be chance that a number of towers are affected and they have limited number of engineers (which is obvious) so 6 hours is a understandable situation. While this issue is very unlikely.

@ash He is not implying to say that. I know place Alipurduar. It is really nice place, yes kind of always having rain area. I lived place nearby. I still remember how much “papad belna” done but we were unable to get a WLL Connection. Still we didn’t got connection(pre 2005 era).
BSNL is having very bad network. In my area, even I get slow 3G speed and I’m living in City called Pune. Local BTS goes down most of the time.
What @Sumanta is telling, BSNL or other companies are not showing there keen interest in giving Fast service.
