COAI Urges Centre to Review National Fibre Program

Comments Off on COAI Urges Centre to Review National Fibre Program 9

Telecom body Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) has said that the ongoing pan-India fibre optic project has “struggled to take off due to operational reasons” and needs corrective steps that include roping in private operators.

COAI that represents Bharti Airtel, Idea Cellular, Reliance Jio, Vodafone and Facebook believes that only “professionally implemented” national backbone network will act as a catalyst for broadband penetration in the country.

“The problem with the national optic fibre network is that the scheme is not holistic and comprehensive and hence is not able to take off properly,” COAI director general Rajan S Mathews told ET. Original post at ET Telecom
