BSNL CMD Anupam Srivastava said – “We are organising trips of schoolchildren to telephone exchanges and giving them presentations on how telecom can transform our lives digitally. BSNL will also organise ‘melas’ to disseminate information about various programmes initiated recently, like ‘Free All India Roaming’, ‘Free Night Calling’ from landline etc.”
As part of Digital India, high-speed Internet services will be made available to all Gram Panchayats and BSNL is a proud partner in this project with the National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN).
BSNL is one of the largest broadband service providers and all urban and rural telephone exchanges of BSNL are equipped with broadband facilities covering 100 per cent and 90 per cent, respectively. BSNL is the first broadband service provider to offer minimum 512 kbps speed to both urban and rural customers. BSNL also offers broadband speed of up to 100 Mbps though Fiber Broadband Services (FTTH).
Anupam Srivastava said – “We are also coming up with mobile wallet, m-Governance, machine-to-machine technology like smart meters and Internet data centres. The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) is also using our cloud based services and the Election Commission is tapping our computing capacities with the six data centres that we have.”
