It is appalling that the telephones at even most government offices have not been functioning. In times when the communication technology has been advancing everywhere, the BSNL telephone services in Goa are in utter dire straits.
Less said the better on BSNL’s internet services. Its connectivity all over and especially in the villages is extremely pathetic. Even where the network exists, the speed is extremely slow which is further frustrating. This has been very adversely affecting students who are on online classes and also people at large being unable to access online services provided by the government and other institutions. Fortunately our Courts have resumed physical hearings.
It is high time that the now dysfunctional BSNLwhich has been in total disarray, gets its act together.
With technology advancing world wide, the importance, benefits and urgency of having state of the art internet connectivity with access and speed has become significantly greater.
The pitfalls of not having one like most of our villages in Goa are sadly experiencing is absolutely unacceptable.
Progress claimed by the Government cannot be just on paper and mere loud talk as the people need to experience and feel that real change for the better.
