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.

Please share your views by comments on BSNL’s new strategy to align with local cable operators for broadband services.

People who are pre assuming BSNL will fail in this venture,
I would like to float a question.
Have we ever wondered that the Cable operators who are providing Internet or the TV streaming, from where are they getting the backbone network.
Its the BSNL OFC network which they use, and provide services under their name.
So I think its a very smart move by BSNL as to Tap that particular segment on revenue basis in which its already present at the backend
