Staff Reporter

KANCHEEPURAM: The Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited's target to roll out 3G services in 760 cities will be achieved by this fiscal, according to its Chairman and Managing Director Gopal Das.

Talking to mediapersons after a function on Rajiv Gandhi Salai in Padur, near Kelambakkam, on Saturday, he said the pan-India presence enjoyed by BSNL had helped in smooth and easy rollout of 3G services in 700 cities. In the remaining 60 cities, the 3G services would be rolled out by March 31, he said.

Earlier, he inaugurated BSNL's new broadband service offered through fibre-optic cables to the occupants of ‘Mantri' – a residential complex promoted by Mantri Developers. The new broadband service – Fibre to the Home (FTTH) – utilises fibre-optic cables and optical electronics instead of copper wire and DSL equipment, Mr.Gopal Das said. There were plans to provide FTTH service to high-end customers in 127 cities across the country.

The BSNL CMD also launched Smart Payphone Card services in Chennai Telecom District (CTD), where the phone card could be used to make calls from specially designed PCO boxes.

Chief General Manager of BSNL Chennai Telephones, A.Subramanian said the launch of FTTH would help improve business prospects of BSNL in the Chennai region.
