Bharat Telecom of Mauritius is now deploying its fibre to the home network and expects to launch its FTTH service shortly.
Network infrastructure development has been underway since 2011. Anil Gujjalu, Chief Operating Officer of Bharat Telecom says: “We have now reached the deployment phase, which means that shortly houses and offices will be connected through 100Mbps fibre optic cables, thus assuring the availability of high speed Internet and other value added services at very affordable prices.”
Baljinder Sharma, Director at Bharat Telecom, says: “BTL has the vision to connect every home and office in the country with a fibre network”.
Bharat says its digital GEPON (Gigabit Ethernet Passive Optical Network) infrastructure will act as a carrier backbone for many other service providers, including both existing and start-up enterprises in the Gaming and WebTV business.
