Digital India Initiative: Vodafone, Aircel In Talks With Government On NOFN Rollout

Comments Off on Digital India Initiative: Vodafone, Aircel In Talks With Government On NOFN Rollout 118

Mobile phone operators Vodafone India and Aircel have started talks with the government on how to speed up the much delayed national broadband project, which will form the backbone of the Digital India initiative.

The government recently set up an expert committee on the National Optic Fibre Network (NOFN) to suggest ways to fast-track the project and the best technology options. The panel was also asked to recommend possible business models. One way is to get private companies to lay down optic fibre in the second phase of NOFN, which aims at providing broadband connectivity to 250,000 panchayats by December 2016 at an estimated cost of Rs 30,000 crore.
