BSNL to rollout massive WiMax network


The largest Indian telecom company, BSNL is planning to build a mobile WiMax network covering three states on the subcontinent capable of serving 250 million people.
State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited is leaning on Soma Networks to build the broadband-speed network in response to government requirement that 20 million broadband lines be in service by 2010.
The WiMax rollout will first hit the largest and most-connected states, but BSNL is planning on extending the network if things go well. When it’s done, 400 Indian cities will be covered, with downstream speeds of 1.5 megabits per seconds. No word on when that might be, but the race is officially on, Sprint.
