Which any other player is not offering. Note that
private players end up carteling together and giving
you the "illusion " of choice. The government telecom
companies have always led to lower prices IMHO.

They do have unlimited plans. Also, the first step of
providing so called "unlimited" plans is giving
current offers cheap.

Private players are making a bigger fool of people. 
Priavte players are not operating in as many area as
BSNL is. Private players are greedy. Most of them
demand cash in advance - and afterwards leave you
helpless. Regarding tech support - I have personally
got better tech support from BSNL than private

Secondly - BSNL is not making tall claims. Where it is
not possible for them to provide service, they do not
give service. Unlike some private players, who take
all the money in advance and promise to install
everything in 2 weeks and then dissapear for months
together. I had this experience with Iqara and

They do have an option of free downloads between 2am -
8am which in my opinion is reasonable.

Anyways, we can keep discussing about this for years
together I guess.
