According to a recent report, BSNL’s 4G service will be launched in 2023 instead of 2022. Many customers in the country were waiting for the launch of BSNL’s 4G network. This news is a big shock to those customers. A top official of the Department of Telecom said that BSNL will not be able to launch 4G this year due to inability to procure components on time.
BSNL can buy 4G network components from domestic companies. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to help state-owned enterprises in this task.
Private telecom companies will start 5G services in the country in October this year. In this situation BSNL is still sweating to launch 4G network. The state-owned company has not seen any profit for the past few years. The company was trying to turn around by launching 4G network. The Center has provided financial assistance to BSNL several times over the last few years with common people’s tax money. But despite all this Bharat Sanchar Nigam still failed to launch 4G network in the country.

Many telecom customers will start using 5G when private companies launch 5G. But many will turn to 4G networks to continue the cheaper service. BSNL will have to bear the cost of not being able to start 4G services in this situation. At the same time, private companies are gradually increasing the price of services to increase revenue per customer. In that situation, BSNL is still providing the solution at a relatively low price. But because of 3G network many people are holding back from using BSNL even if they want to. So if the 4G launch is delayed further, the telecom company will gradually lose customers.
With BSNL, Kendra’s focus is on expanding 4G in rural India
Many are blaming the Center for the delay in BSNL 4G launch. BSNL can buy 4G components only with domestic companies. And this is why the 4G launch is getting delayed. The more this launch is delayed, the more BSNL will fall behind in the telecom world.
