The Central Government has renamed National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN) as BharatNet. The decision was taken in the committee specially appointed to analyse the structure of NOFN. The BharatNet aims at providing broadband connections to villages at monthly rate Rs. 150 in poor villages and at Rs. 250 in other villages. The speed will range from 2Mbps to 20 Mbps.
Decisions have been taken by UPA and now NDA government. Name is changed. But when this will be implemented? Delay and failure to reach the targets have become the face book of the telecom decisions.
