    I think MTNL and BSNL should change the name 3G to 3GG, 3G means Third Generation Mobile Service but 3G is not full for MTNL and BSNL it should be Third Generation, Third Grade Services.

    They have launched the services after the delay of nearly one year, I was very excited to use my 3G mobile, and I purchased a MTNL sim card, after paying and completing all the formalities they started my services after 45 days, shocked??? Try it yourself, and after that the speed of the net was very very poor, even after complaining to the call center 100 of times they just said wait for some time as the services is new it will take some time, I don’t know why they have started the services if they are not having proper infrastructure, some time the customer care told me that the problem is with my hand set some time they told that the problem is in SIM and some time they told that the construction of tower is not completed yet blaa blaa blaa…. Then I visited to my nearest MTNL sanchar haat, register a complaint with area manager, but nothing happened, then I submit my complaint to the Consumer Court , they told me to send a complaint to the Nodal officer, I did same and received a reply from the Nodal officer that they will refund 100/- in the next billing cycle.

    What is the use of 3G service, if you are not able to satisfy your customers, I think 4G is already launched in some countries, and we are using 3GG.
