Full-fledged 3G services of BSNL from October

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited will launch fullfledged third generation mobile telephone services (3G) in chennai  by mid-October.
Major district headquarters in the State, beginning with Coimbatore, will be covered by end-November, said D.Varadharajan, Chief General Manager of BSNL (Tamilnadu Circle).
BSNL had a nation-wide commercial launch of the 3G services on February 27.
Mr.Varadharajan said the State had most of the facilities in place. Additional towers were being installed and training of personnel was almost complete. Private mobile operators will take a year more before they launch the services.
The first requirement for gaining access to the high quality voice services along with high speed data and video
services is a 3G-enabled handset and a 3G SIM card.
When the services were rolled out in 11 cities, BSNL had fixed SIM fee at Rs. 300. This rate structure will continue.
As of now, in the 11 cities, BSNL has voice-based pre-paid plans ranging between Rs. 350 and Rs. 1,350,
while subscribers who opt for the post-paid model will pay between Rs. 500 and Rs. 2,500 per month. For data
services, BSNL will charge additionally. Across the country, this costs between Rs. 250 and Rs. 3,001.

I am a student, and I like to explore. after graduating as an engineer, I chose to learn about the non technical stuff about life because I felt curious about them. Unlike the engineering, these fields of social life were more complicated and difficult to have any consensus or even logic. yet, I saw life somehow always flourishing! My attempt is to understand these complex social issues in life and present them in simple terms, and this blog is an humble attempt in that direction. currently I am preparing for the Civil services i.e. Indian administrative service which involves study of all aspects related with India, its society and its governance.
