Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. Key Developments

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. Launches Speed Pay Mobile Wallet Service

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. has introduced a mobile wallet service dubbed 'BSNL SpeedPay'. The SpeedPay service enables cashless transactions, as well as cash withdrawals of up to INR 100,000 at ATMs or customer service points.

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. Plans to Invest INR 60,000 Million to Set Up 40,000 Wi-Fi Hotspots in 20 Circles

Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL) will set up at least 40,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across 20 circles, other than Delhi and Mumbai, for which it has earmarked INR 60,000 million. The telecom minister said a global tender for this project will be placed in July seeking private participation. In 2015, BSNL will set up another 2,500 Wi-Fi hotspots at 250 locations at the cost of INR 5,000 million. BSNL will provide free Wi-Fi services for 30 minutes per 24 hours (three times a month) which visitors can utilise in multiple sessions. After the free usage limit of 30 minutes is exhausted, a customer can pay for using the services. Subscription plans are available in the denomination of INR 20, INR 30, INR 50, and INR 70, valid for 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 120 minutes and one day, respectively. BSNL has also planned to expand Wi-Fi coverage to other tourist and religious locations like Khajuraho and Jagannath puri by March 2016.

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Plans to Launch 4G Services in Six Circles

Bharat Sanchar Nigam planned to launch high-speed fourth-generation (4G) services across six telecom circles, of the 20 circles where it operates. BSNL is in talks with various telecom companies, including Reliance Jio Infocomm (RJIL) and SSTL, for a strategic tie-up. Telcos are eagerly awaiting announcement of the guidelines on spectrum sharing and trading, which is expected to be in place in a month or two. It is the only telco that has 4G spectrum in 2300 MHz band across all 22 telecom circles. But, unlike RJIL, that plans to launch 4G services in few selected circles in next one or two months, BSNL is expected to start its 4G operations in six of its circles only by March 2016. On the other hand, Russia's SSTL, that operates in India under MTS, offers mobile services across nine circles. MTS has, however, denied any such plan. BSNL has limited spectrum to offer full-fledged 4G services and would need at least 5 MHz for successfully rolling out 4G services and is looking to partner with other telco. BSNL is currently overhauling its operations and upgrading its networks. It is also looking at convergence of its wireless and wire-line networks to provide high speed data 4G services. It has broadband spectrum in 16 telecom circles.
