The Telecom Commission of India will provide internet facility in as many as 25 far-flung gram panchayats in the State through satellite connectivity under the Bharat Net Phase II programme.
The commission has taken this decision following a survey. Places where optical fibre cable (OFC) can’t be laid, satellite connectivity is the only option for providing internet facility to those areas, said an official.
In order to connect 2,564 gram panchayats with Broadband facility under the Bharat Net Phase II, the Telecom Commission of India has approved a Rs 350-crore project. – Orissa Dairy
