Hyderpora ‘not reachable’ for BSNL subscribers
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 24: Hyderpora square could be a busiest place in the City, but it lacks proper cell phone connectivity when it comes to the subscribers of the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited.
The cell connectivity in the areas like Ibrahim Colony, Gulberg Colony near the chowk, is so poor that the subscribers there often remain in the “not reachable status.”
The poor connectivity is affecting the life of the BSNL subscribers living there.
“We cannot contact each other on phone in case of need… What is the fun of a mobile phone when it doesn’t work accordingly,” complained a subscriber.
“My job is at risk because my office people presume that I deliberately keep my mobile in out of reach status but the fact is that there’s no connectivity,” said Farooq Ahmed a local.
Ironically, the problem isn’t new but persists for the past many years. In 2009 the then GMT BSNL while admitting the problem had said that a new tower would be erected in the area.
But three years on the BSNL promise remains a promise.
