BSNL is at its worst @ my place. You won't get much coverage outside city limits. Even on prominent kasbas, there is zero coverage.

I think Air Tel provides coverage to Loop in this part, hence the coverage was so good the last time you came around.

I am glad I ported my BSNL no to Air Tel.

OT ; Been hearing good network coverage by BSNL in J&K, true?

BSNL has the best all-round coverage across India, especially the remotest of places. In JK, BSNL works in most places, and I never had any serious voice fade-out issues in BSNL calls.

BSNL 3G also works in most places unlike other operators whose data services don;t work at all in many places!

Further updates on my mobile number:

1. I paid my previous month's bill, although it was delayed beyond its due date of Sep 16, due to the ongoing suspension of my number - but now that the number has been restored, I paid up the last month's bill.

2. I applied for re-activation of International Roaming in the number, but I get an automated message saying that "sorry your request cannot be processed” - looks like Loop is now blocking services to my number??

3. Loop is yet to give me a formal communication regarding restoration of my number. The have also not answered my queries regarding procedures followed to investigate complaints, protection of users' data, "market practices" of defaming customers, credit in current month bills for non-availability of mobile services for 18 days, etc

might be OT: and not suitable for this thread as well, but I have not heard of problems with networks of Vodafone. They are quite good at it. I use loop too as a secondaru number, and I am fed up with their Customer Service. My primary number is Reliance, and it gives me good coverage and charges are reasonable as well, especially 3G.

@hvkumar; A schwein always remains that.All services incl International should have been restored automatically. I think you haul up the bosses once again.

As for BSNL for a long time they were the only Op in J & K. Old habits die hard - we were in Leh, their network was down for - wait for it - four days! They are good in remote areas, since if they have an exchange, they add a tower. Connectivity etc. are very poor in urban (esp crowded) areas.
