TRAI Brings in a Big Budget Plan for National Broadband
| by Ashish Koshy |
TRAI will help the country in taking a step towards internet connectivity with a plan that connects about 63 large cities and about 4315 small cities/towns. They will be setting up two agencies, the National Optical Fiber Authority (NOFA) and the State Optical Fiber Authority (SOFA) at the central and state levels respectively. These agencies will help in rolling the plan out on a whole.
While the industry wants the current fiber infrastructure to be leveraged rather than coming up with a new one, TRAI has an opposite view. While they plan to create a new network they will still go ahead with re-enforcing the current one. A couple of reasons for doing so was that the new network will cater to long term bandwidth requirements efficiently and will not cause any inter-operational problems.
