Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), the largest broadband service provider in India with countrywide presence is now looking for a partnership with Local Cable TV Operators (LCOs) and Multi System Operators (MSOs) for providing Broadband services on Cable TV Network on Pan India basis.
BSNL has invited Expression of interest (EOI) offers from MSO/LCO who intend to provide broadband services, to their customers using Hybrid Set Top Box or any other customer premises equipment (CPE) on cable TV network.
Under the agreement, BSNL will provide connectivity for Broadband services to LCO/MSO in tier-2 locations. The LCO/MSCO would use their cable network to provide the broadband connectivity with required equipment to subscribers. BSNL is also planning to offer voice services to LCO/MSO with free night calling offer.
