Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 17, 2009

GANGTOK(PTI): The state-owned major Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) on Wednesday launched its upgraded telephony service 3G in Sikkim to provide various entertainment contents on its mobile telephony.

The 3G service has been extended to all four district headquarters Gangtok (East Sikkim), Namchi (South Sikkim), Mangan (North Sikkim) and Geyzing (West Sikkim) with immediate effect following the official launch, BSNL General Manager (Mobile), West Ben gal telecom circle Mr Amit Bhattacharjee, told reporters here.

The BSNL customers can watch the news and entertainment programmes from a host of cable channels with videographic description of the surroundings from where the contacts have been made, he said.

Adequate infrastructure has been laid down for providing quality service to the 3G customers in Sikkim, but some constraints did remain at a few places on the highways where it would be difficult for the customers to use video contact and their availabil ity on the audio remains all the time, Mr Bhattacharjee said. – PTI
