    August 10th, 2015adminScience & Technology

    Public sector undertaking BSNL is poised for to strengthen and expand its 3G coverage in the Mysuru-Kodagu region.

    The plan is to strengthen the 3G data network in the district headquarters by adding new 3G nodes, providing 3G at all the existing towers in all the taluks and providing 3G nodes to all important hoblis, villages, tourist places, industrial areas and educational institutions.

    This was communicated by BSNL Chief Manager P. Nagaraju to Pratap Simha, MP, consequent to his query on BSNL’s plans for improving 3G coverage in the region.

    BSNL said that they would start receiving the equipment by December 2015 and complete the installation by December 2016. Of the proposed 95 3G sites in the region, as many as 85 sites are in Kodagu district while Mysuru which already has a good network and infrastructure and is served by 3G, will get only 10 new sites.

    Out of 85 3G sites in Kodagu district , 20 sites will be in Madikeri taluk, 30 in Somwarpet taluk, and 35 sites will be located in Virajpet taluk. In Mysuru district, 3 sites will be located in Hunsur taluk, 1 in K.R.Nagar and 6 sites in Mysuru taluk.

    However, the request for strengthening and expanding the 2G sites has not been approved by the BSNL Corporate office as emphasis is on strengthening the 3G coverage, according to the communique.

    Welcoming the decision, Mr.Pratap Simha said the identification of new 3G sites by the BSNL indicates that a majority of them are in far-flung areas of the hilly or remote areas of Kodagu which augurs well for the development of the region.

  • This is a happy news for kodagu people as kodagu is facing a lack of 3g and 2g signals…..

  • All BSNL & Other Private Mobile Phone Operators should Upgrade from 2G to 3G. All Villages, Towns & Cities in India should be covered by 3G as Minimum coverage. 2G should be taken of completely. In its place, 3G or 4G should be replaced. 4G will be a better option. Speed & Network coverage should be increased considerably.
