    hi all ,
    this is completely out of tune with the regular threads but since i had a problem i couldnt resist.

    how many of you use broadband??

    well i do . i got an account for 250 bucks .yup the famous "250 for a month" and guess what i got in the bill . ok, just add another zero to the picture now its complete. my dad almost killed me with words. ( he thinks all that went for P***. actually...............ok.lets leave that just there )

    so i decided to change the plan better make it 500 bucks so that i get 1 gb atleast.
    now hear this . i went to the bsnl office in my city and asked for a change of plan this what i get .seven people sitting behind a counter none of them knew anything.all they kept repeating was write an application. when i asked what to write in that and to whom. guess what " pata nahi main building me bade saab se pucho." there is no main building and there was no bade saab either

    i tried calling 1957 some body gave me the same lame reply" hum ko nahi pata bsnl ke office pe ja kar pucho "

    i even checked out the site they gave me when i called them [ ] try it it does give the account status but its a mess there. so many things written there which have no explaination. even the god damn 'help' in the top right corner opens a window which has every thing in f****** chinese or japaneses or whatever.

    if any one can help me plz other wise no access to igt from home any more :cry2:

    tough luck i guess.

    do you have a directorate for consumer affairs in india?? report to them ..
    department of fair trade?? report to them
    or just try to get the contact of the badde saab ..
    hate to say this .. but i guess you just got ripped off really bad .. quit the service and find yourself a new ISP .. (if you didnt made a mistake of signing a contract)
    all the best of luck

    no idea bout BSNL, i had hathway at my home..

    it sucks as well, but now my PC is's PC is never free and I removed broadband connection...

    will be getting a new PC + MTNL triband (400 buks a mnth for 1 GB + night 10 to morning 6 unlimited for free)'ll be 512 connection...and well no hidden costs...thats what guys who have been using the same scheme say.
    even those using BSNL are pretty saticfied with wht they lafda

    the scene with Govt. Operators in mumbai is pretty cool....its only the private guys who are to be blamed

    me using airtel broadband ... 599 with 1 GB and 256 unlimited all day all night :D ..... I've heard similar complaints about BSNL... thats why I never took it. On the other hand airtel is a bit costly .. but no headaches either (atleast I haven't had to face any) ..... maintenance is quick and upgrading to other plans just takes a phone call. Besides the connection was given to me in 2 days
