Aiming to bring down the cost of internet by as much as 90 percent, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is said to have submitted a proposal of open-architecture based Wi-Fi grid.
It was informed citing the TRAI chairman RS Sharma that the proposed open-architecture will bring down data prices to one-tenth of the current level.
TRAI sources went on to claim that the products available for consumption should begin from ‘sachet size’ and priced at meager Rs 2.
The whole initiative is aimed at belief of the TRAI that availability of broadband services at a very low cost is the basic requirement of the ‘Digital India’.
It has recommended that entities such as company, proprietorship, societies be able to set up a public Wi-Fi access point.>
