He said that barring Baddi where BSNL will launch 4G services, rest of Himachal will be provided by 3G services. For this purpose in the current financial year 620 new BTS will be installed in entire State, out of which 305 will be 3G for data services and rest 2G for voice. He said that the main aim of the BSNL was to provide better and modern services to its consumers to compete with private companies.
Mr. Ravi Kant said that BSNL is working tirelessly to provide service in every nook and corner of the State.
