General News BSNL to offer 4G services in 6 months
Advertisement
#1
Chennai: Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) subscribers will be able to access 4G services in six months from now, said the state-owned telecom company's chairman and managing director (CMD) Anupam Shrivasatava who was in the city to address BSNL employees.

BSNL has also set up more than 4,000 Wi-Fi hotspots for free access by BSNL mobile users across the country including those at Mahaballipuram, Broadway bus stand, Madras high court campus, Flower Bazaar (Parry's Corner), Central station, K K Nagar R T O, General Post Office (Rajaji Salai) and many spots near BSNL exchange buildings.

By March 2013, BSNL aims to set up 40,000 Wi-Fi hotspots. Shrivasatava said that the public sector unit is in talks with private companies. Shrivastava said, "We have acquired 2500mhz spectrum at market rate. We will partner with private operators and ask them to set up their network in our spectrum and provide us 4G service in return."

Unlike private operators, BSNL currently does not offer 4G services as the highly-burdened PSU has been unable to afford the classical LTE (Long Term Evolution) 4G wireless broadband technology required to achieve high data speeds.

"We are planning to procure LTE in the 2100 mhz band. Thee companies have participated in the tenders. We should be able to roll out 4G in six months.
