BSNL next to bring 3G to India

Chris Ziegler

Residents of Ambala, India have just been blessed with an exciting new reason to pay close attention to their overage charges -- and it's about time. Following MTNL's recent launch, fellow carrier BSNL has recently flipped the switch on its own 3G service, which is currently limited to the Ambala area. Data rates run between 2 and 3 rupees per megabyte -- about 4 to 5 cents -- which actually seems like an insanely awesome deal, all things considered. Considering the red tape developing up in the hallowed halls of government, it could be a long while yet before anything goes national, but hey, at least a few cities are getting blessed with the good stuff in the meantime.
