BSNL Set to Launch 4G Network in Mysuru Soon: Report

BSNL is gearing up to launch a substantial upgrade to its network infrastructure with the commissioning of 690 4G towers across Karnataka. This initiative aims to significantly bolster connectivity in key regions, with a specific focus on Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, Kodagu, and Mandya districts.

Ujwal Gulhane, Chief General Manager Telecom for Karnataka Circle, highlighted these developments during a recent media briefing in Mysuru. He emphasized that BSNL’s efforts are part of the Government of India’s 4G saturation project, closely monitored by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), underscoring the project’s national significance in enhancing digital connectivity.

The rollout is being executed in phases, beginning with 79 identified locations in rural areas within the Mysuru business area. These locations currently lack any network coverage from existing mobile operators, making the introduction of BSNL’s 4G services particularly crucial for bridging this connectivity gap.

As part of the initial phase, significant progress has already been made. In Kodagu, out of 55 identified sites, 32 towers have been successfully installed. Similarly, in Mysuru and Chamarajanagar, 14 out of 22 sites have been equipped with new towers. Mandya, with plans for two installation sites, is also slated to receive upgraded infrastructure in the near term.

The phased approach reflects BSNL’s commitment to expanding its network capabilities strategically, prioritizing areas with the greatest need for enhanced connectivity. This expansion not only aims to improve internet access for residents and businesses but also supports broader socio-economic development by enabling digital services in previously underserved regions.

Overall, BSNL’s deployment of 690 new 4G towers marks a significant milestone in Karnataka’s telecommunications landscape, promising to elevate connectivity standards and facilitate digital inclusion across diverse communities in the state.
