BSNL’s proposal for 4G services Approved by Government

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) will soon be able to launch  4G services in India as the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has cleared the acquisition of 4G airwaves.

BSNL has submitted a detailed project report in 2017 and in a bid to acquire spectrum worth about Rs 13,885 crore, and sought Rs 6,652 crore as equity infusion from the government. The operator initially wanted to meet the remaining cost through revenue that will be generated over a period of 10 years.

BSNL Chairman Anupam Shrivastava told that BSNL is planning to roll out 4G services on the 2100 Mhz band in all 21 circles. Department of Telecommunications, Government of India, has put the whole process of allocation on a fast track and has given an 80-day timeframe to conclude the process. Interestingly, the company has already rolled out 4G services in Kerala and Karnataka as a part of pilot project.
