Love Me Tender

8:00 AM -- Having scrapped its 93 million-lines expansion project, state-owned Indian operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL) is on course to issue a new request for proposal (RFP) for between 40 million and 50 million GSM lines, according to The Economic Times.

Based on our back-of-the-envelope calculations, that puts the price-per-line at anything from US$85 to $95, which is going to be worth anywhere between $3.4 billion and $4.7 billion to the winning bidder(s).

BSNL is also coming under fire from one of its own board members, who's questioning the operator's subscriber numbers and capacity availability, reports The Hindu Business Line.
