  1. I have to get a minimum of 3.6Mbps for 3G Network. Please let me know whether BSNL will refund my money if I did not get the specified speed. There is no legal statement from any of the telecom companies to advertise the money refund for not getting the 3G speed.

    I called several times to the BSNL customer support executive to learn that they are not in a position to help. Please mention if the 3G network is not fully functional in some cities or areas in your website.

    My question is why BSNL is coming with many plans like 333, 444, and much more for all spheres if they were not able to provide the bandwidth. I believe BSNL is targeting the new customer always bcoz none of them who had used the service will not come back.

  2. Unable to download chrome with BSNL 444 plan 3G in Intex 3.5 dongle and not getting the speed of even 2G.
    I had tried to download for 8 hours continuously but unsuccess/ even Youtube also not opening.
    Very dissatisfied with BSNL 3G network speed. Even my three BSNL numbers which activated through MNP are also not working in Intex 3.5 dongle.

  3. Data network in the Raisingh Nagar, Sriganganagar, Rajasthan region is impoverished. Phone catches the BSNL 3G signal, but it even does not open the Google.
    Aforesaid minimum 3.6Mbps speed if out of the way here. Please cure the BSNL 3G network here so that we can enjoy the full benefit of the 3G data recharge for which we have paid to BSNL
