BSNL to go to tender for 50,000 WiMAX kiosks

4 Oct 2007

State-owned telco BSNL is set to launch a tender for 50,000 WiMAX-based ICT kiosks. Although frequencies appropriate for WiMAX-based networks have still to be awarded by the government, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has sought approval to allocate some 2.5GHz spectrum to BSNL for this project immediately, so as to not delay the planned completion date of August 2008.
