Nine teleservice providers have come forward to sign Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with BBMP to pay the fees for the unauthorised optical fibre cables (OFCs) they have laid in the city.
The MoUs are expected to be signed shortly. Four more teleservice providers are expected to join them soon.
Earlier, the BBMP Council had passed a resolution and constituted a committee to look into the matter. The committee has submitted its interim report and recommended the disconnection of the unauthorised OFCs.
According to Mayor B S Sathyanarayana, the BBMP is expecting around `400 crore from its agreements with these companies.
