As you all know BSNL recently announced all India free roaming and now from the latest sources,The telephone giant, BSNL the largest state run telecom company in India invested 6000 crores to set up more than 40,000 WiFi hotspots across different parts of India.
BSNL expected to complete this project with in 3 years of time and may be well before the project deadline may be end of 2018.
As per various reports;
BSNL will be providing 30 min of free Wi-Fi hotspot service for every 24-hours, valid for maximum three times in a month. After the free usage BSNL expected to charge Rs.20 for validity of 30 minutes, Rs. 30 for validity of 60 minutes, Rs. 50 for validity of 120 minutes and Rs 70 for 24 hours.
BSNL already launched the project in Agra, where they inaugurated Wi-Fi facility at Taj Mahal and the service will soon be extended to all the famous tourist spots.
I think this big move from the central ministry will definitely help the state run BSNL to make reasonable profit and reduce the net loss in coming years.
