Broadband in India: Overview

November 16th, 2009 · 62 Comments

Among the many areas that India has not invested in is broadband infrastructure. In fact, not only has the government not invested enough through its telecom companies, it also effectively prevented the ISPs from doing anything to bridge the last-mile.

A friend mentioned that TRAI was doing a consultation paper on broadband. I couldn’t help thinking about the pointlessness of the exercise – there was a similar exercise done three years ago. What needs to be done is clear, but there seems to be little interest in doing it.

So, knowing what we know now about our government, what is it that we can ask them to do so we can start creating a thriving ecosystem around broadband? According to me, there are two things – and only two things – that the government should do:

  • Open up the 40+ million wireline local loops owned by BSNL and MTNL lines so that private telecom operators have last mile access to those customers
  • Ensure the 3G and Broadband Wireless spectrum auctions get done in Jan 2010 (we are already many years late with this), and do it in a way that those who lose the auction don’t more the whole allocation in legal tangles. And of course ensure that the winners start using the spectrum won as quickly as possible

Beyond this, it is for the industry to make things happen. There are many ideas and solutions that can come into play for the devices, pipes, services and business models. We will visit those areas in the coming days.

    It will be good to ensure that the 3G specturm is used for broadband and not for serving the 2G voice spectrum starved companies and Mobile TV!

    Now, all the broadband services over DSL copper line is outdated in 2018. The present era is offering broadband services over Fibernet providing 100% genuine internet services with out any network break downs even at 100Mbps speed.
