India Government steps to improve internet connectivity

By Sreyasi De 30-Dec-2017

India government has taken a step to improve mobile connectivity in rural areas by equipping solar towers. The intention behind planting solar towers is to keep the towers functioning even without no power supply. Yesterday during Rajya Sabha question hour, Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha said that Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) will get help from the new towers to improve their services. Such decision will definitely improve public sector connectivity and telecom service in rural India. Currently, India has a total of 4.61 Lakh mobile towers and BSNL owns only 66,771 towers. Now BSNL’s subsidiary company will own the towers for BSNL and will have the right to monetize them for financial stability. The Telecom Minister further added that a proposal for the same has been submitted from the side of BSNL. In the proposal BSNL showed interest in testing 4G as well. Sinha further included that there are 30,000 villages in India that has no internet connectivity and such steps will improve the situation. He has urged the state's government to identify such villages so that new tower planting plan can be curved accordingly to get more benefits.
