Post Comments
  1. Comparing bsnl to other operators is like comparing a donkey to race horses. Absolutely unsatisfied by Bsnl, they have limited success bcuz they are cheap, same cheap feeling we have when we call the idiots in their customer care. Also those tortoise working in bsnl offices. The network will not work on power cuts.

  2. New plan 78 for 30 days Rs/468 only For 6*6.If we paying for 1 month at a time for 5GB have to pay;93 extra.&1GB less.why??
