BSNL may finally jump on the 4G bandwagon soon

In a tweet announcing that BSNL finally has a 4G network, Minister for Railways, Communications, Electronics and IT, Ashwani Vaishnaw, said he has used the service, “Made my first call on BSNL’s Indian 4G network (developed and manufactured in India). PM @narendramodi Ji’s vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat is taking shape.”

BSNL can finally offer its customers 4G plans

While all other telecom companies in India were offering 4G services, BSNL was the only major player to stick to 3G. Now it seems BSNL is finally ready to enter the 4G market and win back its lost customers. The government had initially stated that BSNL would be able to offer 4G networks to consumers within two years, tweet by the Minister of Railways, Communications, Electronics and Information Technology suggests that the company may be way ahead of schedule.

Although BSNL offers some of the cheapest packages in the market, the lack of 4G offerings has certainly hurt the company’s revenues. It was assumed that if BSNL continued to make losses, it would be sold to a private company, as was the case with Air India. In his tweet, Vaishnaw said BSNL would use a 4G system developed and manufactured in India, contributing to the government’s mission to make the country as self-sufficient as possible.
