The state-owned and operated Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is set to launch high-speed 4G telecom services in six months of time, revealed the telecom giant's incumbent chairman Pravin Kumar Purwar in an interview to Economic Times.

The company will be investing a whopping sum to the tune of Rs 12,000 crore to establish a robust and reliable next-generation network over the next two years so as to increase its odds against the three private sector telecom giants, Bharti Airtel, Reliance Jio and Vodafone Idea.

The telecom behemoth's walk towards launching 4G services comes after the Government of India recently announced and approved a mega revival package to turn the company EBITDA positive within the next two years.
