BSNL Kerala 4G plans offer
BSNL's customers in Kerala have been missing out on 4G, but it looks like these days will go away soon as, according to a new report from Mathrubhumi, the telecom company's consumers in South India may soon have a chance to enjoy 4G .


According to a new plan, approximately 15,000 network towers in South India will be upgraded to offer 4G connectivity. Of these 15,000 towers, about 80% are present in Kerala.

The towers, which are equipped with Nokia's BTS or Base Transceiver Station, will now receive an additional system to broadcast the 4G network.

Will BSNL 4G Really Arrive in Kerala?

The management of BSNL (Bharti Sanchar Nigam Limited) recently approved the project, which required the approval of the director of the board. This 4G spectrum, which was awarded to telco in 2018 as part of a reactivation package, can finally be used to offer the service.

In case you are wondering, generic mobile towers have two units, namely a beam part that is present at the top and a base part that is present at the bottom. BTS or Base Transceiver Station is a combination of the two and will add to the radio part of the existing towers in and around Kerala.

When this pilot project completes, BSNL mobile subscribers can easily access and experience high speed mobile internet through this 4G BTS services. BSNL will have to pay 30 million rupees a month to take advantage of 4G connectivity in the country, to use the spectrum that the Indian government had assigned to the telecommunications company.

Interestingly, BSNL does not see this as a burden of any kind, despite losing ground to competitors such as Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio, as this move could provide better service and could result in increased revenue by attracting more customers to the region. .

Please note that this plan was previously proposed and BSNL's 4G system installation process was abandoned due to the tender which included a new guideline which required 20% of equipment manufactured in India. According to the latest report, BSNL already installed around 60,000 towers in different locations across the country of India.

BSNL has recently taken steps that could bring it closer to private telcos, and telco has finally started implementing an SMS-based registration service. Consumers wishing to subscribe to a BSNL service can do so by sending the correct message based on the type of connection they wish to have.
