BSNL is already posting operating profits. The government expects BSNL to completely turn profitable by FY27. This would be only possible if BSNL's 4G is a hit. The telco is deploying homegrown 4G and plans to launch it in December in many states in the South and also in Punjab. BSNL is using the tech provided by a TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) led consortium which includes C-DoT (Centre for Development of Telematics) and Tejas Networks. BSNL has said that it can upgrade its 4G to 5G without any hassle and expects to launch 5G in the second half of 2024.
