RailTel close to sealing bandwidth deals with ISPs, cable operators

RailTel Corporation of India Ltd, the year-old telecom arm floated by the Railway Ministry, is close to sealing deals with leading Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and cable operators for leasing out Indian Railways’ excess bandwidth for commercial use.

The companies with whom RailTel is in talks include private sector giants like Tata Teleservices and Global Tele Systems. Besides these public sector MTNL and BSNL are also in talks for leasing the Railways’ excess bandwidth.

Indian Railways has a huge excess capacity of bandwidth across the country and has been planning to put it to good use by leasing it out to private and public sector companies at commercially viable rates.
