State-owned telco Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) has begun deploying an intra-city fibre-optic network in Mumbai and Delhi, the Economic Times writes, citing MTNL MD PK Purwar. The fibre network is intended to improve coverage in the region and will be made available to other operators, the official added. Although the size of the planned network was not given, Mr Purwar said that it would cost around INR600,000-INR700,000 (USD9,743-USD11,367) per kilometre.
