BSNL, MTNL to roll out WiMAX pilot projects

MTNL are said to be planning WiMAX pilot projects in Delhi and Mumbai. Similarly, BSNL are said to be planning projects in Rohtak and Chennai.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has not yet assigned frequency spectrum for WiMAX services. Once TRAI assigns spectrum for WiMAX and decides on its pricing, MTNL will offer WiMAX commercially to its subscribers. This will, of course, depend on the success of its pilot projects.
