State Owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) on Thursday rolled out its 4G mobile services in India from the southern state of Kerala.

Initially the 4G service will be available at five locations in the high range Idukki district. The service was commissioned by making the first call to BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Srivastava, a BSNL press release said.

Commissioning of the service in other districts in Kerala is expected by this year end, BSNL Chief General Manager P T Mathew, said adding the work in this regard is progressing. The 4G service will offer higher data speeds leading to a better user experience, he said.

BSNL prepaid mobile subscribers will be able to avail an international facility in the US which is being launched in association with T-mobile. The roaming facility has also been available in Nepal in a tie-up with N-Cell.

The operator also launched its new mobile prepaid ‘Home plan, which offers unlimited local/STD/BSNL roaming calls to one Kerala BSNL landline number.
