A Good news, at last some light is seen at the end of the tunnel with respect to full fledged roll-out of 4G of BSNL.
It is learnt that finally BSNL has received the nod from DoT to go ahead with the tender plan which comes as a major relief for our beloved company. It is learnt that under the proposed hybrid 4G rollout plan, BSNL had earlier recommended splitting its tender of total proposed One Lakh 4G sites into two parts.
- The first part contained 50,000 sites reserved exclusively for the Indian vendors (PoC based).
- The second part contained the rest of 50,000 sites through proven technology rout of global vendors such as Ericsson, Nokia and more, where Indian vendors can also participate if completed PoC.
It was proven fact that without pan India full 4G roll-out, the survival of our beloved company was at stake and day by day, hopes were diminishing for its revival. This development is surely going to give a new lease of life to BSNL and will surely lift up the sagging morale of the employees of BSNL. Now with this hybrid concept, BSNL will be able to withstand the competition as well as at the same time, it will be doing its duty for Aatma Nirbhar Bharat also.
Though many may call it an exaggeration, but incidentally our association has also proposed on similar lines few months back. We are happy to note that our thought process was in line with the requirements of the company as well as the duty towards Aatma Nirbhar Bharat.
We extend our heartfelt applause for our CMD BSNL and the Board of Directors for standing firm in the testing times. We sincerely pray that BSNL achieves success in rolling out full fledged 4G services without any further delay.
