Private companies currently offering broadband services in India include Bharti Airtel Ltd., Reliance Communications Ltd and Tata Teleservices Ltd, which together have about 850,000 subscribers.

BSNL is in the process of conducting trials on mobile services using WiMax. Intel is conducting WiMax trials in a dozen Indian cities.

Another state-owned communications firm, Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd, is conducting two pilots in the country. And privately owned Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd. is deploying multiservice wireless broadband systems from Aperto in 65 Indian cities.
