Broadband services in the country are expected to get a leg up with Chinese telecom equipment maker ZTE Corp joining hands with BSNL to set up broadband services across the nation. Under this, the Chinese firm will install ultra high speed ADSL2+ and VDSL2+ broadband services across 15 circles of BSNL network. In a statement released to the media, Cui Liangjun, CEO of ZTE India said the company is pleased to join hands with BSNL to make broadband connectivity more widely accessible in the country.
With this, ZTE will have 45% of BSNL’s DSL market share and is the third time that the firm has won DSL project from BSNL. The tie up is also expected to improve the quality of services of BSNL’s fixed network broadband services alongside addressing future requirements of multimedia broadband services.
