Need for internet access to improve a lot more everywhereThe Government run BSNL is on the verge of collapse. It has the worst outdated technologies and only in metros is the Net service reliable. In the smaller C class towns, it is a huge problem to get a good access to internet at least for two continuous hours. Even if it rains for two hours, the Net is gone and the landline that does not work even on normal days, goes out of service in a record ten minutes!!
In this jet age, when internet access is the need of the hour, the Government should open up the private sector even more. The costs should also be competitive. At the moment, we have just one or two players in the Net space. Let there be at least twenty fellows in every single area. The costs will also come down. The best option for the Government is to totally go in for disinvestment and sell the company to a good private sector operator, who would give the old timers a good golden handshake and recruit young professionals to do far better jobs.
Will the Government wake up at least now?
