Well, I’ve been using BSNL Broadband for the past 3 years and till early this year, had nothing but good things to say about their services. I recommended BSNL Broadband to friends, and even got application forms for some of them. 😀
This bliss was shattered a few months ago, in mid-April to be precise, when one fine day, I was just not able to connect to the net. Inspite of numerous workarounds, the Error 891: message refused to disappear, and as expected, the BSNL call centre was non-responsive.
One of India’s most heavily visited sites, http://www.irctc.co.in/ has gone in for a makeover.
The new site seems much more simpler, user friendly, and easier to navigate, though I haven’t tried out all options yet. It is presently labeled ‘Beta’, and keeping in tune with our Independence Day, will go live on 15-Aug-10. 🙂
