India’s national telecom backbone Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd  (BSNL)  is expanding mobile and Broadband network capacity and it will become a leading telecom operator of country again, its Chairman and Managing Director (CMD)  Mr. R K Upadhyay said.


BSNL’s CMD, Mr. R K Upadhyay said “We lagged behind all other private companies, as we could not purchase the required equipment to enhance mobile and broadband services  in the last 4-5 years due to many reasons. Now everything is okay and tenders to purchase has been floated and planned a Rs 40,000 crore capital for the purpose.

BSNL is always for peoples of India and this is once again proven by the recent slashing of 2G Data rates by some of the leading private telecom operators. Since , BSNL is offering VBC (volume based charging) of 1paisa /10KB for postpaid and 2paisa per 10KB for prepaid for a long time on Pan-India basis, which is now followed by the private operators in only limited circle after slashing the rate.

BSNL CMD also said that the company is emphasizing on converting present telephone exchanges into New Generation Network (NGN), to give all mobile facilities to land line subscribers. Total 29,000 such telephone exchanges shall be converted to NGN of which 28,000 are in the rural sector across India.
