Hi,

I’m thinking of deploying GPON FTTH in a village (5-10 connections) — I’ll be taking TSP partnership with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited.

I like networking so I’m doing it just as a hobby.

Is there anyone who has experience in the same? I’m not sure if I’ll face any hurdles.

It’s my own village in Madhya Pradesh.

I’m thinking of giving Triple Play to users. Not sure how to do give TV. (Just an Idea)

BSNL FTTH 100 mbps plan 1277
wont 5-10 connections be too low number to sustain any decent revenue to avoid losses, when you compare the investment needed to set up the infrastructure there?

I’m not doing this for profit, I have a connection from BSNL (with BBNL — Gram Panchayat) and I’m not happy with the service because BBNL is taking a lot of time to repair fiber faults.

What I’m trying to do is; getting an OLT; license and bandwidth from BSNL (all should be done under 50K)

And then I’ll get a separate fiber line from BSNL to my home (where I’ll keep the OLT) and I’ll give connection to my neighbours so I can move them out from ADSL.

The investment is only 50K AFAIK, and BSNL will give me a fiber line and maintain it, so I think it’s a good deal.

Airtel FTTH, Limras Eronet, TICFIBER,ACT Fibernet.
You're benefitted by the NOFN project.
It's what I'm talking about.TN govt didn't opt for BBNL to do the fiber laying work, instead they said they are going to do it.
Till now they didn't even start planning the project.
