BSNL 4G likely to debut on Independence Day
The state-backed Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has been slowly rolling out its 4G services in various circles across India. But the company so far hasn’t formally announced its services in the country. It hasn’t completed the deployment of its 4G network across the country either. Now, a new report suggests that the telecom giant is likely to launch its 4G services in India on Independence day.
“BSNL will introduce 4G services with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) as its technology partner. It will be for the first time that Indian technology will be used for 4G services,” said BSNL’s consumer mobility director, Sushil Kumar Mishra.
He also stated that the 4G services would be available in Delhi and Mumbai initially. Plus, the executive said the company is building 1,00,000 telecom towers across India. “Instead of smart towers, BSNL will begin with monopoles, which are less expensive and more effective,” he added. Plus, 40,000 telecom towers will be installed in Bihar alone.
