BSNL broadband to get richer

Joji Thomas Philip in New Delhi | July 07, 2005 11:10 IST


Broadband customers of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd have a lot to cheer about as they would soon be able to enjoy content rich surfing with access to Internet Protocol and time shifted television, video-on-demand, voice and interactive messaging and next generation gaming.

In the first step towards enriching content, BSNL will invite Expression of Interest from content providers next week on a non-exclusive revenue share basis, and follow it up with tenders, company executives told Business Standard.

The PSU is also set to slash broabband tariffs further and will introduce a slew of new entry level packages in an effort to garner a sizable numbers to meet the target of a million customers by the year-end.

Customers can access these value added services by October, company sources said.

Following the launch of its broadband services in January, BSNL currently offers broadband services in 112 cities and has a subscriber base of a little over 80,000.

According to company officials, BSNL has held talks with about 10 domestic consortium for the supply of content, and has also approached various global software including Microsoft for running IPTV services.

In the second phase, BSNL is looking to top up these services with the launch of music on demand, interactive radio, live downloads in addition to tie-ups with popular websites, the executive said.

On tariff reduction, the executive said that entry barriers would be further reduced from the current Rs 499 per month. "International bandwidth prices are falling, and this will correspondingly reflect on our tariffs. We may explore the option free broadband usage during night hours," the executive added.

i have also posted this information and thank you too for the same.. reminds me of a hindi movie starring `sachin' & `sarika'... the hero keeps promising the heroine many things like `tujhe jhule meain batha doonga' etc. etc. and on each promise the heroine asks `kab'.. the answer is invariably.. `Saawan Ko Aane Do'! so when will this `Sawan' of `BSNL' come? ;) Pupudada!

well let's hope this `sookhi lakdi' sees the sawaan this saawan itself... "bsnl's" honeymoon reminds me of another song.. `na jaane kyoon, hota hai kyon zindagi ke saath... aachanak ye man, jane ke kise ke baad, kare phir uski yaad, choti choti si baat' Pupudada!

I guess so. See if they reduce the rate of 499 to something lower ( Say X )and then its clubbed with the Rs 210 pm unlimited of VSNL then the cost will be X plus 210. If the rate for that falls then the rate for Dataone has to fall also. Or rather shoudl fall.
