BSLN offering FTTH through Cable TV network
Aimed to provide fastest broadband services to their customers Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSLN) tied up with the local cable operators to provide the services earliest under the Fibre to the home (FTTH) programme.
Presently we are providing FTTH based broadband services only in Ranchi, Jamshedpur and Dhanbad but through cable TV operators we will make our reaches in the remote locations including where our optical fibers are yet to reach, said R Prasad, GM (Comm.) BSNL Ranchi.
“We are on move, through Cable TV network we will make our reach of fastest broadband service in Dumka, Deoghar, Daltanganj, Hazaribagh, Ramghar, Lather, Garwha including others very soon,” he added
