Hi allI went to bsnl customer service centre and my exchange also!!!They are telling me ports are not available to give new connections and thts why it may take 3 months!!!:O And I recently found out Airtel dont have coverage in my area(LB NAgar,Hyd).Contacted reliance guys,they too are saying the same thing!So,after 2 day search for local cable operators in my area and some customers,found SIfy is horrible and I finally took some Southern Online internet service...Any hyd guyss..ever heard of such a thing???And one more point...BSNL SUCKS!!!!

well.. bsnl doesn't suck.. its awesome!! but.. they seem to have this shortage which i really cant understand why.. cuz.. they were supposed to get the equipment this month i guess.. also.. i've heard that the ul plans are given the connections faster compared to the other connections.. maybe cuz of the speed?? anyways.. the thing is. once u get it.. it awesome! keeps working like a clock..airtel imo is stil the best though.. (for unlimited plans)

Yah,they should be ready to face this problem...How do they expect customers to wait for 3 months or so...And local cable operators are taking advantage of this!!!Atleast I expected reliance to have more coverage and challenge BSNL and Airtel!!But they too dont seem to care much!!!

i suppose problem with bsnl is that they are getting more customers than they expected and hence they are always short of hardware.or other reason "may be" internal corruption which make customer go to different ISP.

you mean to say that the bsnl babus take money from private operators to not give out connections to people? :p

lol...yes possible..not babus but may be at higher levellook at CAS scenario... how fast they obtained STBs.STBs are reqed almost for every house even then theyarranged for STBs.DSL hardware is reqd only for say for 5-10% as of now.and they still cant arrange it. give it to pvt sector companyand see within a week it will be arranged.
