“BSNL general manager Dilip Siram and assistant general manager Arung Siram told a Telecom Advisory Committee (TAC) meeting here yesterday that the public telecom service provider has launched Wi-Fi hotspots at Itanagar, Naharlagun, Bordumsa, Chowkham, Dimwe, Kharsang and Likabali Army telephone exchanges,” reported Press Trust of India.
Ninong Ering, Congress MP from Arunachal East constituency also attended the meeting and even stressed the need for extra efforts to push telecom network to every nook and corner of the landlocked Himalayan state.
Just a couple of weeks ago, BSNL announced 4G services in some regions of Kerala state. But it’s just a soft launch as BSNL used 3G spectrum to launch 4G spectrum. BSNL is also setting up 4G Plus Wi-Fi hotspots in various cities across the country and even revised the entire tariff portfolio of these hotspots. BSNL is expected to roll out full fledged 4G services after the next spectrum auction.
