BSNL’s Chairman and Managing Director, Shri.Anupam Shrivastava said – “We are thinking of a subdued version of the app wherein
the service will be applicable within the home premises only. The main
objection was that BSNL was converting landline phones into mobiles by
this method. So we will limit this to home broadband. Even with cordless
handset, you can roam around the house, so we are thinking that instead
of cordless, the app will be there on the mobile which will be
connected to landline and most of the calls could be made through that.”
“Our strategy is to combine the broadband and mobile and offer free voice call. The plans will be cheaper than Rs 149 by Rs 2 to Rs 4 to compete with Jio,” BSNL CMD added.
