  4. Worst of an experience with BSNL As anticipated
    I àm searching for guideline regarding FRC since last midnight, Almost five times I tried to know in detail about type of FRC and it’s availability to individual customer, but none of Customer Care Officer answered my query Abit
    Poorly educated ,totally manner less, Curt and careless are the persons BSNL has recruited to communicate with his?? Valuable Customers. Never ever if I remember I would have been successful in approaching any Senior Customer Care Officer in time of Need.
    *On top of this is the cader of BSNL Office bearers and managerial person, one will endorse my statement by seeing them personally that they are list interested in improving company’s reputation and quality of service. They won’t have knowledge enough to answer questions arising out of little technical messup.*
    This sounds too ironical but it’s all true. To withstand world class competitor like Jio and other Telecom Company BSNL has nothing and infact it is wearing money of Government by making huge loss.
    The most shameful I could notice is that most office bearers do not know that BSNL has CDMA network which they always hide and discourage customers to think on that ??? maybe because it is being utilized by mainly by their staff only. CDMA is best and yet chip data service available against too congested GSM, WCDMA & LTE Bands.
    Will any one focus and do something about salvaging the company and holding nation’s repute from getting naked.
