BSNL is set to revolutionize the Indian telecom landscape with its upcoming nationwide rollout of 4G services, scheduled for August.

BSNL 4G Services Will Launch Across India In August, 2024

Introduction of Indigenous 4G Services

With the deployment of 4G services in Punjab using locally developed technology by TCS and C-DoT-led consortium, BSNL has already attracted around 8 lakh subscribers. The success of this pilot phase has paved the way for a nationwide rollout, showcasing the prowess of indigenous solutions in delivering high-speed connectivity.

Performance and Achievements

BSNL has achieved commendable peak speeds of 40-45 megabits per second on its 4G network during the pilot phase, utilizing the premium spectrum bands of 700 MHz and 2,100 MHz. The robustness and reliability of the core network, developed by C-DoT, have been instrumental in driving this success.

Strategic Partnerships and Investments

Tejas Networks, TCS, and government-owned ITI have secured contracts worth approximately Rs 19,000 crore for the deployment of BSNL’s 4G network, which is also upgradable to 5G. This significant investment underscores the confidence in BSNL’s indigenous technology and its potential to revolutionize the telecom sector.

Future Outlook and Expansion Plans

BSNL is gearing up to deploy 1.12 lakh towers across India to support its 4G and 5G services. With over 9,000 towers already installed, the company is making rapid progress towards achieving its expansion goals. Additionally, BSNL’s commitment to providing 4G-capable SIMs ensures seamless transition and enhanced service offerings for its customers.

Conclusion

BSNL’s forthcoming nationwide rollout of indigenous 4G services marks a pivotal moment in India’s telecom journey. By leveraging homegrown technology and strategic partnerships, BSNL is poised to deliver high-speed connectivity to millions of users across the country. As the telecom landscape continues to evolve, BSNL’s innovative approach promises to shape the future of connectivity in India.
