Bengaluru, Dec 29 (UNI) The State-owned telecom provider BSNL has made an operational profit of Rs.3000 crore so far and is growing at 4 to 5 per cent annually during the last four years, turning positive from a minus 5 per cent growth, earlier, a senior official of BSNL said today. Moving towards consumer centric technology and enhanced access speed, BSNL is geared to match the competition, especially from the latest operator Reliance GIO, and would be introduced a slew of new schemes on January one, BSNL Director (Consumer Fixed Access) N K Gupta said. Speaking after inaugurating the first ever next generation packet Aggregation Network (MNG PAN) in the country here, he said the new technological introduction, providing highspeed bandwith in broadband access network using optical fibre links, would upgrade the backbone of broadband network immediately to 20 G from the existing 10 G and later it could be scaled upto 40 G, Mr Gupta said. BSNL in association with FibreHome India planned to introduce MNG PAN in 14 other cities apart from Bangalore, and they were Ahmedabad, Ambala, Chennai, Coimbatore, Ernakulam, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Jalandhar, Nagpur, Noida, Pune, Tiruvananthapuram and Vijayawada. While 65 such rings were planned, Karnataka would have nine and installation would be completed by February 15 next year. MORE UNI CNR CS 1500
