New Delhi: State-run telecom operator BSNL on Tuesday said it expects to close the fiscal with 10 lakh 3G users from seven lakh at present.

"We have received good response and have about seven lakh 3G users and by the end of this fiscal, we should have crossed a million (10 lakh)," Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) Principal General Manager (Value Added Services) S S Sirohi told reporters on the sidelines of the 3G India Mobile Operators Executive Summit here.
BSNL, along with the other state-run telecom firm Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL), are the only operators to receive start-up 3G spectrum, even before the auction of the airwaves.

"We are present in 300 cities and towns, which will be increased to 760 over the next 3-4 months," he added.

BSNL is also focusing on introducing a variety of Value Added Service (VAS) offerings to drive its 3G plans.
"Apart from cheap calling rates, we are also offering cheap video calling, video streaming and full track download. We will soon offer video conferencing and other interesting applications," Sirohi said.
