Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has launched Bharat AirFibre for offering internet connectivity in rural and remote regions of India.
The services have been launched using airwaves in the free spectrum band primarily in rural areas where there is no interference.
BharatAirFibre would offer high-speed broadband services including voice services through radio frequency (RF) technology at affordable tariffs on the unlicensed spectrum band.
BSNL has come out with an open policy for Bharat AirFibre business partnership and plans to have at least 3,000 partners in a quarter.
The connections will be sold through a partner registered with BSNL while the telco would offer billing and authentication, space, and power to deploy radio equipment and provide call centre support to subscribers.
BSNL aims to add 100,000 new broadband customers for the service in the next fiscal. The plans for BSNL Airfibre connections will start from Rs 500 per month onwards.
