The FTTH service relies on a Self-Healing Network,which is able to provide seamless triple play service, even in case of damaged of the optical fibre, the information will be re-routed through another line.The system deploys services involving voice, data and video communications irrespective of distance and location. It provides all communication facilities by using broadband and land line network, including Internet access, IPTV, video-on-demand, content-based services, interactive gaming and VoIP services. The services will also support enterprise applications and features such as LAN, VoIP and video conferencing

We are currently in the process of going for installations at 35 sites in the HTD and another 50 sites are yet to be identified as part of this project.

BSNL has a lot of corrupt people working for them. They take money from pvt players and delay work. They have the best GPON network across the Hyderabad, but they do not act and provide FTTH services to home users. Other local providers are providing Fiber Internet of 10 MBPS at the same price that BSNL offers 1 MBPS on copper wire…. Shame on BSNL management.


Grt! FTTH is a new saga in Indian Telecom Industy. It will be amazing if it is provided at affordable prices for common users.
