BSNL Director (CFA) Vivek Banzal said: “We have launched Bharat AirFibre on the airwaves in the free spectrum band primarily in rural areas where there is no interference.”
BSNL wants to add 100,000 new broadband customers in the next fiscal with service plans starting from Rs 500. Bharat AirFibre offers high-speed broadband including voice services through radio frequency (RF) technology at affordable tariff on the unlicensed spectrum band.
He added: “We are planning to have at least 3,000 partners in a quarter, and the service will enable subscribers to avail voice and data service with a specified phone number.”
The platform wants to launch out content services and is also engaging with the state governments to create content in a qualitative manner.
At present, BSNL has 7.6 lakh kilometres of optic fibre networks spread across the country.
