It is well known to all that BSNL is the PSU which provides universal service in the country without any discrimination between urban and rural areas. Despite huge loss to the company, BSNL provides services in lakhs of villages as part of the government’s policy of universal connectivity. Private companies are interested only in profit and whenever and wherever profit is not there, they will withdraw from service.
BSNL restores its services expeditiously whenever there is any natural calamity and help the people in distress. it was done at the time of Uttarakhand landslides as also Kashmir deluge. Now when the Hudhud battered Visakhapatnam and nearby places, it is again BSNL which came to the rescue of the common people.
I am reproducing below a report from Hindu, which appreciates the service of BSNL during the recent Hudhud cyclone which devastated Visakhapatnam and nearby places and resulted in many deaths.
” When all private networks failed to provide dependable service when Hudhud cyclone battered North Andhra Pradesh, BSNL was the only operator which proved its robustness.
BSNL’s extraordinary efficiency at the time such a huge crisis – whether it is for carrying out relief operations or for filing updates to media corps or to know well being of kith and kin. “It was BSNL mobile network’s effectiveness which helped me in establishing contact with my old parents to know their well-being after Hudhud caused heavy devastation in Visakhapatnam,” Dilip, an NRI software engineer from New Jersey said.
In Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam, BSNL was proved to be most dependable. “Our mobile signals and landlines functioned extremely well under trying circumstances. Our towers could radiate signals and render good services,” a BSNL spokesman stated.
The official promised to restore wherever their service was partially-affected.”
My Hearty Congratulations to the BSNL Management and workers of A.P. who helped the people in their distress and restored the services in an extremely effective manner.
