The BSNL is going to roll out 4G services in Assam by March this year.
Chief general manager (CGM) of BSNL (Assam Circle) Sandeep Govil said this on Friday while adding that the public sector undertaking is investing about Rs. 200 crore for rolling out the 4G services in Assam which includes cost for infrastructure upgradation including the laying of optical fibre.
Govil was addressing a press conference in the wake of some media reports that the BSNL
is going to close down.
"At this moment there is no proposal under consideration with the government for closure of BSNL. On the contrary, the department of telecommunications (DoT) recognises and values the inherent strength of BSNL as a telecom service provider with huge infrastructure and reach, especially in rural areas. Further DoT is in the process of finalising a proposal for revival of BSNL to be considered by the Digital Communications Commission (DCC) very soon," Govil said.
