BSNL to add 50 lakh connections by March next year

State-owned BSNL hopes to add 50 lakh new connections, under New Generation network by March next year, a top official said in Shimla. 

 
Under the plan, services accessible on mobile phones will also be provided on landlines under the d name Wings and both mobile and landline users  will be included in Common User Group (CUG), said N K Gupta, member, BSNL Board of Directors.
 
NGN will help division of calls from eight mobiles or landlines to one number under mobile conversion and video conferencing among 30 persons for which the subscriber could either attach the cable to the computer or laptop or purchase SIP phone armed with a camera and screen. 
 
The entire process will be automatic and no additional charges will be required to be paid for six months. 
 
BSNL is trying to address network issues and call drop and 300 base transceiver stations (BTS) are being installed to increase services in Himachal Pradesh, which being a hilly state faces the problem of multiple reflection that increases dark spots, he said.
