Finally! BSNL Will Start 4G Services In This City, Using 100% Made In India Technology

Adapting Native Technology

As part of a significant move towards indigenous technology, BSNL has partnered with Tata Consultancy Service (TCS), Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DoT), and TEJAS Networks, in order to adopt a native 4G technology for this endeavor.

Soon, BSNL will upgrade all 222 existing towers in the Thoothukudi Operational Area to 4G, utilizing 10 MHz spectrum, as per a media report.

Improvement In User Experience

Besides this BSNL has planned the installation of 24 new 4G towers in the Thoothukudi Operational Area. 

This move from BSNL aims to enhance the mobile coverage throughout the district.

This would further help in improving the connectivity experience for BSNL mobile customers.

Moreover, BSNL expects a significant improvement in user experience and customer satisfaction once the planned network upgrades and expansion are completed. 

According to them, these advancements will pave the way for more reliable and high-speed communication services.

This way empowering the residents of Thoothukudi with the latest technological capabilities.

The existing customers who currently use BSNL 2G/3G SIMs are requested to obtain BSNL 4G SIMs from nearby BSNL Customer Service Centres, franchisee offices or designated mela locations so that they can access the advanced 4G services provided by the telecom.

It is noteworthy for the consumers that the transition to 4G SIMs will be facilitated free of cost while ensuring a seamless and convenient upgrade process for users.

This launch of BSNL’s indigenous 4G services in the Thoothukudi district holds a great significance as it is a step towards advancing India’s telecommunications infrastructure. 

BSNL is committed to delivering the state-of-the-art communication services that meet the evolving needs of its customers with its latest move of partnering with leading technology companies and embracing homegrown solutions.
