Indian telecom regulator invites participation in public Wi-Fi pilot to provide affordable and widespread access to data

The model being explored to provide affordable and secure last mile Wi-Fi access is based on TRAI’s recommendations on ‘Proliferation of Broadband Through Public Wi-Fi Networks’. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has issued an invitation to entities to be part of a pilot to establish Nation-wide pay-as-you-go Public Data Offices (PDOs), which would provide Wi-Fi hotspots, retailing data packages to the public at low prices. Data costs on mobile Internet plans are still too high for many Indians, who ration their cellular data usage.
