Yeah calm down I am telling you the good news, From 1st October the public company will offer a “Minimum broadband speed of 2MBPS’’ from October 1 to it’s customers and that too with NO EXTRA COST.
This is indeed a good news for all the BSNL customers who were just making up mind to get the private players broadband services because of the quality , speed and reliance ( not talking about Ambani’s Reliance corporation ). Now the BSNL has also tightened it’s boots and is ready to have a marathon as even the private sector players are afraid of this proposal as it will surely eat up their revenues.
BSNL is seriously losing a huge amount of customers in landline, broadband and as well as in mobile sector. The company lost massive 1.78 crore wireless and over 20 Lakh wireline subscribers between March 2014 and March 2015 and the amount of loss stood at 7,600 crore.
The scheme was launched by the telecom minister Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad and he said that the BSNL should have frequent interface with it’s customers and the efforts to increase the speed of internet is the first step towards the Digital India initiative led by the NDA government.
The opposition always raised allegations against government with tags such as “suit boot ki sarkar’’ clearly hitting on the government is influenced by the corporates and the lobbyists to make policies in favour of them but this step clearly is a slap on the oppositions face and it shows government serious efforts to push up the PSUs to higher level to make them competing with private players and to be a profit making firm rather than a loss making one.
Anupam Shrivastava BSNL CMD said “ We have increased the speed to four times from 512Kbps to 2mbps which is available at last mile and the services will reach the customer from 1st October”.
We have to admit that the management is now shit serious about it’s losing customers that’s the reason BSNL brought a scheme few months ago for example: free call from landline to any number after 9pm to 8am and the lowest 3G services provided in country.
