BSNL actively promotes FTH internet in DK Telecom District

The Fibre to Home (FTTH) technology-enabled internet services in the Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts are being aggressively promoted by the DK Telecom District of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL), with prices starting at just $449 plus taxes per month.

According to BSNL’s official, over 2 lakh FTTH connections have already been provided throughout the Karnataka Telecom Circle, but the business has more than 18,000 clients in DKTD. After the Central Government permitted BSNL to utilise the Bharat Fibre network of Bharat Broadband Network Ltd., the aggressive drive was made possible (BBNL).

BSNL is working with franchisees to roll out FTTH services on a revenue-sharing model, providing thousands of young people in the area with job prospects. The franchisees, who currently number 63 in DKTD, would receive up to 50% of the revenue from the FTTH service. 

In around 18 months, BSNL will expand the service to the entire DKTD, where 4G technology is now only available in Mangaluru. The rehabilitation strategy for BSNL put forth by the Union Government ought to increase the amount of funding available to it, speeding up its growth. Madappady in Dakshina Kannada and five villages in Byndoor taluk of the Udupi district will receive these new BTS, while over 660 new base transmission centres have been authorised for Karnataka to provide 4G coverage in untapped areas.

Recognizing network problems in Mangaluru City, BSNL expressed the expectation that funding from the resuscitation plan will assist it in resolving those problems.
