BSNL set to start 4G services soon

BSNL set to start 4G services soon”

Initially, BSNL 4G LTE services will be launched in the state of Kerala and later the services will be spread to Odisha in the following month.

BSNL now has 5MHz spectrum in the 2100MHz band that would be sufficient to get its 4G project rolling initially. Currently, the telecom sector of India is going through a tectonic shift with many mergers like that of Vodafone and Idea in the pipeline.

When contacted, BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Shrivastava told PTI that the board has approved the DPR and the same will be submitted to the government shortly. But what is confirmed is that the roll out may start in January 2018.

"We are going to start 4G from Kerala".

According to the operator, it will focus in areas where 3G coverage is low.

Besides, talks are also on for creating a new brand identity for BSNL's 4G services, and plans are all set to counter Jio, Airtel in this regard.

BSNL is aiming to expand the 4G service to rest of the country in the forth coming days, but in order to do so, the telco believes that they require additional spectrum.

State-run telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has reportedly sought additional 5MHz spectrum in the 2100 MHz band through the equity route for a pan-India rollout of 4G services.

BSNL, which has 10 crore mobile customers, hopes that the soon-to-be-launched LTE-based 4G services will bolster its offerings to customers by allowing them to enjoy faster data speeds and improve user experience overall. "So the network will become 2G, 3G, and 4G with enhanced data capability", says Shrivastava.

BSNL though will have to do a lot as most private operators have their own 4G services in nearly all major circles. "Once the additional spectrum comes in, this number will rise", adds Shrivastava.
