BSNL Mobile is a mobile phone service provider provided by the Indian public enterprise BSNL. It was formerly known as CellOne. It provides both pre-paid and post-paid mobile services as well as many value added services.

BSNL Mobile has a pan-India presence with presence in all the 21 telecommunication cellular circles in India. BSNL Mobile provides all of India with roaming access, including Delhi and Mumbai, and International roaming access to more than 300 networks across the world.

Many private Telecom Operators have entered the Indian market and acquired many customers and have given stiff competition to CellOne in recent years. The major private players are airtel, Reliance Communications, Tata DoCoMo, Aircel and many more.

CellOne started their GPRS/EDGE service in 2005 and has coverage in major cities and towns and more places are being covered. BSNL Mobile offers both gsm as well as cdma prepaid and postpaid services.

3G services[edit]

BSNL had started 3G services before the allocation of spectrum to private operators in India. Other private players are expected to roll out their 3G services when they are allocated the spectrum for respective circles in 2nd half of 2010.

CellOne was renamed BSNL Mobile in 2007.
