BSNL has launched 4G mobile service in India via soft mode.
State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has finally launched its 4G services in the country with Kerala being the first state to get the service. And, being a step ahead, it offers its services on a 4G VoLTE-only network. But, the 4G service isn't rolled out in the entire state of Kerala, instead, it's now only available at five locations of Idukki district - those are Senapathy, Chemmannar, Kallupalam and Udumbanchola.
Given that the organization has guaranteed that it will reveal the 4G benefits in Kerala by the year end, we are wary if the 4G services will be taken off to alternate districts in the nation soon as there is a deficiency of range for the administrator.
P T Mathew, BSNL Chief General Manager expressed that the more wide-ranging rollout of the 4G services is in advance.
Meanwhile, Nagella Trinath, a digital marketing expert based in Hyderabad had uploaded a screenshot of the 4G mobile service speed test conducted on BSNL 4G network.
It is to be noted that the company hasn't purchased any new Spectrum. As you can see in the image, BSNL 4G is offering a download speed of 25.20 Mbps and upload speed of 5.36 Mbps.
BSNL subscribers in these districts where the 4G benefit was presented can profit the fast availability with their current 3G U SIMs 256K modules.
BSNL also unveiled a new entry-level Home plan of Rs 67, which allows a user to make unlimited local/STD/BSNL roaming calls to one Kerala BSNL landline number.
That said, BSNL has also partnered with T-Mobile in the United States and N-Cell in Nepal to offer roaming services to its customers travelling to these countries.
Sadly, BSNL may not launch 4G services in other parts of the country due to the shortage of spectrum.
