BSNL LAUNCHES MOBILE SERVICE IN SIACHENNational telecom backbone Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) today created a history in the Indian telecom industry with the launch of its GSM Mobile Service at the world’s highest battlefield  & coldest place – Siachen Glacier.

With the BSNL initiative, Siachen Base Camp will be connected with the rest of world through its GSM mobile service. In an attempt to serve the nation’s security forces,  BSNL’s Jammu and Kashmir unit has erected a BTS (Mobile Tower) to provide seamless GSM mobile connectivity in this region.

The mobile BTS was installed a few days ago near the army base camp,  just away from the Siachen glacier at the snot of glacier . Due to security reasons the GSM Mobile service has been commissioned today.

Now India’s soldiers who are serving in the glacier sector can talk to their families without waiting in queues at the STD booths set up for them at the army base camp which is at a high altitude  in Partappur ( Ladakh region) of Jammu & Kashmir state.
