This tie-up will help bridge that gap.” He added, ““BSNL is in advanced stage of discussion with a few more companies that are planning to enter the MVNO service. ADPAY will launch the services in less than six weeks.

MVNO business is expected to account for five per cent of the BSNL’s mobile revenue.”
