    The DKTD would provide adequate bandwidth to all the panchayats, he said in a release here. The telecom district would also install the next generation network telephone exchanges in eight places in the two districts to enhance features on the landline network.

    Baikampady, Surathkal, Urwa, Kodial, Manipal, Udupi, Brahmavara and Ajjarkad are the places selected for the new exchanges this year. The Mangaluru International Airport would be the first to get Wi-Fi coverage from among the locations selected for the facility, he said.
