BSNL brings Video calling on Landline phones, PCO changes to VCO
In a great move, Bhartiya Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has launched landline telephone that can be used to make Video calls.
BSNL is offering this service in partnership with SIS Infosystems. They will replace Public Call Offices (PCO), which have gone extinct after mobile advent into new Video Call Offices (VCO).
R K Upadhyay, BSNL Chairman and Managing Director said, "We will convert existing Public Call Offices (PCOs) to VCOs with these phones. People will be able to make voice calls to any phone and video calls to any other IP (internet based) phone".
Rs 3 will be charged for a 45second of video call from VCO.
A K Jain BSNL Senior General Manager for Broadband said, "Around 770 PCOs have confirmed to shift their business to VCOs and the target is to have 10,000 VCOs set-up across the country".
Most of the revenue of BSNL comes from landline phones and this service can increase company's revenue even more. This new service can also bring a lot of change, as anyone will be able to make a video call.
