VSNL to install 2,000 WiMAX base stations

12 Jun 2007

The Tata Group-controlled VSNL is planning to roll out 2,000 WiMAX base stations across the sub-continent. The company will spend INR45 billion (USD1.1 billion) over two years on the project, which will see wireless broadband services being rolled out to business customers in five cities this year. The plan, when fully implemented, will cover 120 cities and towns across the country.

VSNL started work on a pilot project a couple of months ago in Bangalore, where it has now launched its first commercial WiMAX services. In the next three months, the company will roll out to Mumbai and New Delhi.
