OUR STORY : OUR JOURNEY FROM OUR BIRTH TO OUR GROWTH
THE BIRTH OF GTPL KCBPL
In 2005, a group of 160 cable operators, in a very unique manner, turned themselves into shareholders and made KCBPL a successful MSO in the Kolkata Metropolitan Area (KMA). At an ongoing stage of business in 2010, our visionary management team of highly dedicated and experienced directors, led KCBPL to enter into a joint venture with GTPL Hathway Limited.
Thus, GTPL KCBPL was born.
Over time, we have become the leading MSO in West Bengal and Odisha. Post digitization, we have a subscriber base of about 20 lakhs. Furthermore, we have expanded and made our presence felt in Kolkata, Howrah, Hooghly and 11 other districts.
We recently rolled out our Broadband Service in KMA and other nearby districts. This will add more value to our consumers and business partners, and at the same time, with the state-of-the-art technologies, we will be offering the best of services.
In addition, we are also the house of Channel One, an infotainment channel, which offers a diverse range of entertainment including travel, food, news, lifestyle and devotional content. Their shows cater to a large Bengali audience. Undoubtedly, Channel One has become a renowned household name among Bengali families.
After the successful rollout of digitization in West Bengal and Odisha, we believe that our partners and viewers will stand to benefit from more opportunities, products and value.
Our mission is to provide compelling, cost effective, and technologically advanced Cable TV and Broadband Services to consumers, and add value to all stakeholders.
Our vision is to be a leading Multi System Operator (MSO) AND Broadband Service provider with state-of-the-art technologies,and establish ourselves as superior, in terms of technology, credible in terms of commitment, and ethical in terms of business practices that add value to consumers, business partners and all associates. As an organization, we want to grow along with all stakeholders.
