It is inexcusable that the BSNL services across Goa are in a state of flux. A lot of phones have been dead for the last few years. Even the telephones at most government offices including the Secretariat are not functioning. In times when 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 adversely affecting students in their online classes and also people at large being unable to access online services provided by the government and other institutions. Fortunately our schools are set to reopen next week.

It is high time that the now dysfunctional BSNL which 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 and Development 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.
