Unless there is a change in plans, BSNL has announced to offer a minimum speed of 2 Mbps to all of its existing and new broadband customers.
The announcement comes in the wake of heavy subscriber losses to private network providers. Right now, BSNL offers a minimum speed of 512 Kbps and the state-run organisation hopes that this decision will revive the company.
According to latest data, as reported by the Times of India, BSNL lost 20 lakh wireline subscribers and 1.78 crore wireless subscribers between March 2014 and March 2015. In total, the losses were of 7,600 crores.
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) will also redefine the minimum broadband speed which is currently only 512 Kbps.
Anupam Shrivastava, the CMD of BSNL said:
“We have increased the internet speed four times…we have ensured 2 Mbps is available at last mile, which is the customer premises starting October 1”.
