BNSL launches an exemplary service that allows customers to make calls using the company’s mobile application called “Wings” to any phone number throughout the country.
An Indian State-owned telecom service provider Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) disclosed India’s first internet telephony service that provides an opportunity to its users to make call on any telephone number throughout India with its Mobile Application, Wings.
By using this service, BSNL users will be able to call on any network in the country while using BSNL Wi-Fi or other service providers.
This service benefits the people who struggles to have a good mobile connectivity but have an access to Wi-Fi connection. Before this, the users were allowed to make calls only within the mobile apps, but not to telephone numbers. However, this transition will help people to make calls on any mobile number.
After inaugurating the service, Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha stated that – “In the present competitive environment, increase in market share by BSNL is laudable. I congratulate BSNL management for internet telephony which will enable consumers to make calls without SIM.”
BSNL is going to offer unlimited audio and video calls for one year. To activate the service, Customers are required to make the one-time payment of Rs. 1,099 only.
All the international calls are chargeable in line with the present landline tariff with an additional fund deposit of Rs. 2,000.
The registration process for the service is going to start this week. Alongside, it is expected that all the new connections will be activated from July 25 onwards.
BSNL Wings claimed to provide services using IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), and architectural framework for internet calls, and Next Generation Network (NGN) that transforms voice, data, and videos into IP packets. To run the service to send or receive calls, users need to install an SIP client or Wings app on their Smartphone or computer devices.
Enjoy this new service and we will keep updating you with the latest information if we receive any.
