BSNL had received approval from the National Security Council Secretariat (NSCS) for 4G up-gradation, but it was canceled by the nominees on the government’s board because they felt that rolling out with Nokia’s equipment would be unsafe. However, now the company will roll out a 4G network in all the telecom circles of the country by next year.

Recently, the central government had approved 100 percent foreign direct investment (FDI) in the telecom sector. Additionally, the government decided to give telecom companies a four-year moratorium on spectrum charges and AGR dues.

Telcos (BSNL) had invited Expression of Interest for Proof of Concept (POC) for Indian companies who were willing to participate in BSNL’s upcoming 4G tender. Earlier, the government had launched a scheme for both the telecom companies – BSNL and MTNL. The plan included administrative allocation of spectrum for 4G services.
