Internal Letters Confirms Jio-BSNL Deal

Back in August 2014 media reported about BSNL-Jio deal that Jio will lease out BSNL's 40,000 towers for 4G roll out.

However none of the parties said anything on the deal. There was no press release from Jio. Anyway with several supported documents it seems that Jio's deal with BSNL is beyond just towers.

Jio is leasing out data links - P2P links of 45Mbps in north east. As the internal letters of BSNL reveals that on 04/12/2014 Jio asked for 4 x 45Mbps P2P links in Manipur (2 arranged at first), 2 in Nagaland (none arranged), and 7 in Arunachal Pradesh (only 1 arranged). On 23/12 GM BSNL sent letters to respective SSAs to take care of the issues personally.

Secondly BSNL Haryna has published from a tender work:
 "Provision of plinth for outdoor BTS at Nirankari Bhawan (GBT), Jindal Chowk (RTT) Balaji Market (GBT) and Old Bus stand Barwala (RTT) for Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. at Hisar & Removing and refixing of aluminium partition in Room No. 204/205 & refixing in Room No. 205 in TE bldg. Hisar" - it validates Jio-BSNL tower deal.

With the help from BSNL, Reliance Jio will escalate the roll out process of 4G and fiber based broadband across the country.
