According to BSNL Chairman and MD Anupam Shrivastava, BSNL mobile networks data is increasing very rapidly. We will be increasing our data network capacity to deliver high-speed 3G and other services. In South, we will double the capacity to 600 TB and in other zones, it will be up to 450 TB by November.

Shrivastava said the recently launched unlimited 3G scheme for Rs 1,099 is one of the key reasons for increase in demand for mobile data on BSNL network. This plan offering customer’s unlimited access to 3G without speed limitations for 30 days.

The loss-making state-run company did not participate in the recent spectrum auction and is trying to monitise its mobile airwaves.

Srivastava said that in 2012, data usage in BSNL network was 80 TB but with induction of 3G unlimited plan its data usage jumped to 279 TB in July and now it is 353 TB.

Shrivastava said that BSNL is ready to compete with any telecom operator in the market. His announcement comes in the wake of Reliance Jio offering unlimited 4G data free till the end of the year. From January 1, Jio will offer unlimited 4G data at a starting price of Rs 19 but the ‘unlimited’ 4G usage will remain valid during night hours.
