BSNL in Almost 48 Hours

In India, the government has a reputation for being slow. BSNL, being the government phone company, is no exception. I have to say that I've been pleasantly surprised.

Well, they are still making it hard to get the phone line and internet connection... show up to their office, get forms, have a form missing. Show up again to get the form, and submit it a 3rd time.

But once that was done... same day we had the phone line set in the house (In India, not every home has a phone jack built-in). The next day it was activated. The third day the internet was set. W00t!

EDIT:
Actually, the line was noisy and was getting on and off randomly. It has been useless for ~2 weeks until we complained in person at the Customer Service Centre. BooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOh!
