Back in January, the state-led telecom operator, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) launched the BSNL Bharat AirFibre service in India. The Bharat AirFibre service mainly caters to the rural regions in the country and aims to connect villages via the means of radio-waves. Unlike the Bharat Fibre service which is the standard offering from BSNL based on wired-FTTH, this is wireless technology.
