VSNL to invest Rs 500 crore in DTH

Videsh Sanchar Nigam (VSNL) will be investing Rs 500 crore, up from Rs 100 crore in DTH project. The state run firm is aiming to achieve a subscriber-based of more than one lakh in its first year of operations, and is looking to bundle television content and Internet access through the DTH platform at a measly Rs 800 a month.

Of the Rs 500 core, one-fifth will be set aside for infrastructure and the balance for equipment supply (set-top-boxes) to its customers. The company will fund the proposed investment through internal resources.

VSNL, has decided against any strategic alliance for the DTH foray, will be able to provide a neutral uplinking platform which will help rope in service distributors and channel partners in India and abroad.

Indications are that Star would probably be the only player to take on VSNL.
