so what do you guys thinks about this latest venture of bsnl? Please let us know through your comments.


  1. I have been using BSNL WiMAX since Oct 2010….Is there anything new? Would have been nice if Phone service is also enabled on WiMax..

  2. IMT-Advanced (International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced) requirements for 4G standards, setting peak speed requirements for 4G service at 100 Mbit/s for high mobility communication (such as from trains and cars) and 1 Gbit/s for low mobility communication (such as pedestrians and stationary users).

    And this BSNL so called 4G is having max speed of 2Mbps. !! lol are you kidding?

    But its fair when 256 kbps connections are called broadband!
