TRAI moots ideas to make public Wi-fi access points easily accessible
TT Correspondent |  |  05 Apr 2018

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has suggested that a company, proprietorship or non entities should easily be able to set up a public Wi-Fi access point, even as it presented a report on public Wi-Fi open pilot project to Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha.

TRAI Chairman R S Sharma also mooted concept of open architecture-based public Wi-Fi grid that aims to bring down cost of internet by one-tenth.

The recommendations by TRAI are backed by the findings of pilot project conducted by regulator. The pilot and trials by TRAI were aimed at demonstrating the proof of concept of such an architecture.

The mesh or grid proposed by the regulator entails various providers coming together to address aspects like services, access, payment, and authentication.

"Broadband proliferation across the country is an important pillar of Digital India. Wi-fi is the cheapest option given low cost of equipment and free spectrum," Sharma told reporters.
