I also heard that news just now at 8 PM Sun News. It would be great if they can give 4 GB plan for 1000 ruppes per month. I'm wondering whether the new rates (if announced) will be applicable for existing customers. I think VSNL should reduce the prices first. Then BSNL will reduce. I saw a news item regarding this few days back in The Hindu newspaper.

I m prayinng that this piece of news is valid and will commence in the period stated....and this time we dont want 5-10% fall in price but atleast a 30% fall in the prices as well as a good amount of increase on the data c®ap

Even if the prices are reduced, BSNL will be the last one to opt for them.that is what happens all the time.if our country need to progress,we need to do something like this.

Got to agree with puja, 4GB for 1000Rs? Wtf is that? Unless they provide 10GB for 256k, 18GB for 384k, 30 GB for 512k, its a shitty bargain. Jesus, no wonder India is still a broadband backwater.I don't know when or how bsnl is going to introduce net tv and other services but with the kinds of packages it has, one has to keep in check even just the regular websites.
