After MTNL, BSNL has also launched it’s 3G mobile services in India recently. BSNL has become the second mobile phone service provider in the country to offer 3G services to it’s customers. While MTNL is mainly present in the metros, BSNL is present in each and every other state including the rural sector. By launching it’s services much earlier than private operators and taking an advantage of the current mess in which 3G auctions are lying, the state owned enterprises are aiming for the larger slice of the 3G market in the country.
MTNL had earlier launched it’s 3G services in select parts of Delhi. BSNL has launched it’s 3G services in 11 cities across the nation. It plans to cover a much larger number of cities in the next phase. As far as tariff plan is concerned BSNL is charging INR 300 for a SIM card. Existing 2G customers can also migrate to 3G services by paying for a migration voucher for INR 151. Migration is subject to technical feasibility. Interested customers can register on this page for a new 3G connection from BSNL.
