BSNL will become India's first telecom company to offer Made-in-India 4G. All the private telcos took help from companies such as Nokia, Ericsson, Samsung, Huawei, and ZTE. Punjab is most likely going to be the first state from BSNL to get commercial 4G services using homegrown tech. After that, BSNL is expected to target markets such as Kerala, Tamil Nadu and more where the company has a decent standing and a prominent active user base.

BSNL to Remain an Affordable 4G Player

Even after launching 4G, BSNL will not increase the price of its services. The telco aims to be the most affordable service provider in the telecom industry. BSNL is expected to add new subscribers once it launches 4G in several parts of India. How fast can it upgrade to 5G and lock in enterprise clients is something we will have to wait and watch.
