Online news portal DNA Money is reporting that state-owned telco Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) is planning to roll out WiMAX services in the city of Ahmedabad by the end of January. BSNL ran trial WiMAX networks in eight cities during 2007, but the operator has indicated it will focus initial deployment of the technology in rural regions. BSNL has said it will spend INR16 billion (USD329.9 million) on the new infrastructure and aims to cover 25,000 villages within a year. Despite the auction process for WiMAX spectrum having not been completed, BSNL has already received spectrum in three circles; Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra.
