Indian Government is taking some serious steps to modernize the country. In a recent step to remove black money, PM Narendra Modi sacked the Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes, which is already creating waves in the country.
And, he is now vying to digitize the country by introducing public Wi-Fi hotspots all over the country, which was long way coming as several rumors previously suggested the same.
But, we at GIZBOT, today brought up an exclusive information of how this actually works in the country. Take a look at the slides below to know more.
To be Called Super Highway
According to our sources, the yet-to-be-implemented service will be called as ‘Super Highway', which essentially provides you faster speeds.
A Total of 70,000 Hotspots
The Indian Government is planning to setup a total of 70,000 hotspots across the country. So, every small city will be able to get this hotspot feature.
How it Works?
For this project, the Government has called up all the telecoms in the country. And, there will be a standard refill pack of various denominations such as Rs. 5,00 or Rs. 1,000 with the same speed, but different validity. Each hotspot will be managed by a respective telecom network and if the area is covered by a different network, then the voucher purchase money will be given to that particular network.
Common Payment Gateway
And, it was also confirmed that the payment gateway will be common for this project. No separate gateway will be given to a particular telecom service.
Expected Roll out?
As of now, there is no information regarding the exact roll out of this project, however, the service might be live for public by the end of April 2017.
