BSNL started offering WiMax as its wireless broadband solution using 2300MHz BWA spectrum. However, BSNL received poor response from customers as it was offering same broadband plans on WiMax and coverage was very limited. In the meantime, private operators who won BWA spectrum in 2009 auction went for LTE network which turned out to be the 4G standard across the world overthrowing WiMax.

BSNL had earlier surrender its BWA spectrum used WiMax service in six circles and operate limited WiMax service in rest of the 14 circles. The PSU is also in process of launching 4G service in remaining circles and had announced shutdown of WiMax service in few circles.
