BSNL plans mega WiMAX rollout

13 Apr 2007

India’s BSNL is expected to float a tender to offer WiMAX services in 1,000 cities across the country. Unnamed sources said BSNL is awaiting the final policy announcement by the Department of Telecommunications on 3G spectrum and broadband wireless access. If the policy is announced this month, it hopes to finalise the tender by July so that deployment can begin by September. The planned tender would be for 1,000 base trans-receivers, which would be a mix of both non-line of sight (NLOS) and line of sight (LOS) BTSs.
