It is understood that MTNL will demonstrate the technology in Delhi this week, with an MTNL company official quoted as saying, ‘The service will utilise MTNL’s existing investments into internet protocol television (IPTV). However, it will offer higher speeds and provide newer services such as high-definition video and even high-definition TV channels.’ No date has been announced for the launch of commercial services using the technology.
