Currently India is trailing behind other South Asian countries in broadband connections and as a leading ICT player in the market, we aim to support this with our latest offerings. We have identified a strong demand in the market which echoes the need of one fixed broadband networking connection for atleast 4 WiFi users and we are optimistically working to bridge this gap.
