TRAI moots public Wi-Fi access grid


Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) mooted an ambitious model of a public Wi-Fi grid that aims to slash Internet access cost by 90 per cent, and push broadband proliferation in India. TRAI Chairman RS Sharma told reporters that the regulator’s concept involves Public Data Office Providers (PDOs) – much like PCOs of yesteryears that galvanised connectivity.

The PDOs will be companies, or even small merchants, interested in providing Wi-Fi hotspots to public using either free or paid model.
