BSNL launches first indigenous 4G site in Kolkata

In a significant development for India’s telecommunications sector, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has launched its first indigenous 4G site in the Kolkata telecom district. This marks a major step forward in BSNL’s efforts to expand its 4G services across the country, leveraging locally developed technology.

Launch Details and Technology
The launch of the 4G site in Kolkata is part of BSNL’s broader initiative to roll out 4G services using an indigenous telecom stack developed in collaboration with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and the Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DoT)​. The technology stack, which has been under development and testing for several years, aims to reduce dependency on foreign vendors and promote self-reliance in India’s telecom infrastructure.

Performance and User Experience
Initial reports from users in Kolkata have shown promising results. The 4G network has delivered download speeds of up to 17.9 Mbps and upload speeds of around 7.37 Mbps in early tests​. While these speeds are competitive, they are expected to stabilize and potentially decrease slightly as more users join the network.

BSNL is offering a variety of affordable 4G plans to attract customers. These plans start at Rs 96, providing 10GB of data per day for 28 days, and extend to Rs 236 for 84 days​. These competitive pricing strategies are designed to encourage users to upgrade from 3G and 2G services to the new 4G network. PC Tablet
