BSNL Testing Wi-Fi Technology to Connect 1 Lakh Panchayats in a Year

As the government’s rural broadband project is facing long delays, telecom PSU BSNL is testing an alternative WiFi-based network to connect about 1 lakh village panchayats in a year with high-speed Internet.


The State Run Company in connection with Vihaan Networks has started testing the sustainability of WiFi network in three villages – Karenda, Phalsa and Bahadri – in Alwar district of Rajasthan. Under the project, a wireless network over 6 kilometres has been set up connecting WiFi towers in three villages — Karenda, Phalsa and Bahadri with BSNL’s exchange in Bhiwadi. About 500 test connections have been provided to various users, including schools.

The project was to be completed by 2013 but has missed several deadlines. The NDA government, which came in power in May 2014, had planned to connect 50,000 GPs by March 2015, another 1 lakh by March 2016 and rest of the one lakh by December 2016.

Extra info:
1. Government had also approved NOFN project worth around Rs 20,100 crore in 2011 for facilitating at least 100 megabit per second (Mbps) bandwidth in all the estimated 2.5 lakh gram panchayats (GPs).
2. Minister of Communications and Information Technology – Ravi Shankar Prasad
3. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman –  R S Sharma

so lets do:
1. Who is the Minister of Communications and Information Technology?
2. Who is the TRAI Chairman?
3. Expand the TRAI & PSU?
