  1. Only one reason,Keralites are more educated and literate than others.Ask to any Bengali workers here about a telecom company in India they know,they will only say AIRTEL they never heard of BSNL!!!

  2. I know that BSNL INDIA is a standard telecom company in INDIA. Because it maintain all the tariff at equal rates. Internet is so much cheap is about 2p/10kb. Other networks like airtel,Aircel, vodafone are giving their net as 10p/10kb. Thank you BSNL INDIA for giving in low rates. Also one minus point is there I.e., pls give default validity about 10years.
