BSNL creates history, added 5 lakhs+ new fiber broadband connections.

The latest TRAI Report for the month of July 2021 shows the clear sign of BSNL’s strong come back in Fiber Broadband (FTTH) Segment.

YES. Our BSNL regains its former glory. The latest TRAI report for July 2021 shows a clear signal of BSNL’s strong comeback in the Fiber Broadband (FTTH) segment. We have already witnessed the excellence of BSNL in the FTTH segment not only in Kerala but also in all telecom circles in India.

In comparison to all other private operators in the nation, BSNL gained the greatest number of wireline connections in July 2021, according to TRAI’s telecom subscription data. In July 2021, BSNL continued to hold the top spot in the fixed line sector by activating 5,06,674 new fixed line (wireline) connections. With this outstanding success, BSNL has grown its wireline market share to 35.33% as of July 2021; Bharti Airtel is the second-largest provider, with a market share of 22.40%. With a mere 18.37% of the market, Reliance Jio is the third-largest wireline operator.

BSNL rides on Bharat Fiber (FTTH) Connections!

Yes, during these epidemic times, BSNL’s Fiber to the Home (FTTH) service, marketed as “Bharat Fiber,” has proven to be its lifeline. Not only is it more affordable, but it also offers guaranteed bandwidth and better performance than any other private ISP that is now available in India. With plans to serve every part of the nation with an ultrafast GPON network, BSNL has now made the decision to focus especially on its FTTH commercial segment.

Eliminates last-mile constraints with BSNL FTTH via LCOs.

With its strong optical fiber network, BSNL serves as India’s national telecom backbone. The incapacity of BSNL to provide last-mile connection to end users was what it truly lacked. Regarding BSNL DSL Broadband Services and Mobile Services, the circumstances are the same. Although BSNL maintains an MPLS-enabled fiber network across India, last mile restrictions have a significant impact on service delivery to client locations.

In order to get around this obstacle, BSNL has entered into revenue-sharing agreements with Telecom Infrastructure Providers (TIPs), Multi System Operators (MSOs), and Local Cable TV Operators (LCOs) to extend last-mile optical fiber connectivity to end users in places where BSNL’s direct FTTH connections are not practical. Following the launch of the LCO business model, BSNL began to widely activate fiber broadband connections, particularly in Kerala Telecom Circle.

Now let us see what the other major highlights in the latest TRAI Report are published today.
