10 Jul 2008

The Hindu Business Line is reporting that Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL), the state-owned operator, has chosen Visakhapatnam, excluding Pune and Ahmedabad, for the test-launch of its WiMAX network. Growth of broadband connections in Visakhapatnam in recent years is indicated to have influenced the choice, with 16,000 broadband connections now active in the city. Fourteen locations have been chosen for service in the region and equipment is due to arrive at the end of September 2008.
