New Delhi, Apr 21: MTNL mobile users can look forward to better network connectivity from next month. ''From May, there will be no problem in MTNL as the service provider will be technologically upgraded,'' Communications Minister A Raja informed the Lok Sabha today.
He said about 65 per cent of the country had been brought under the mobile coverage. ''Of the 560,000 villages, 540,000 have phones,'' he said, responding to supplementaries. Admitting that people in areas bordering Myanmar and China get networks of that country, Mr Raja said he would talk to the Home Ministry about it. ''The Government is committed to going in for landlines (in border areas) because of security reasons,'' he added.
