New Delhi: State-run telecom major Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL), in association with U.S.-based WiMax solutions provider SOMA networks, Thursday launched wireless broadband services in Gujarat.

A BSNL statement said the wireless broadband initiative would spread the expansion of broadband connections in the country.

The government has set a target of installing 20 million connections by 2010.

Gujarat Industrial Development Corp (GIDC) is the first enterprise to benefit from this service in the state, the statement said.

GIDC will make this service available to industries housed in their estates, and will also use this service in their own administrative offices, it added.

"We are extremely pleased that the people of Gujarat are the first to benefit from this ambitious wireless broadband project," BSNL Gujarat telecom circle chief general manager Satya Pal said in the statement.

BSNL has partnered with SOMA to deploy WiMax services in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa and Andhra Pradesh.

SOMA has invested in the network rollout and will manage the service on behalf of BSNL.
