1000mbps Google Fibre May Come to India Soon




Internet giant Google is in talks with the IT Ministry to roll out 1000mbps high speed optical fibre-based broadband services as part of the Digital India programme. The connection plan will have no upload or download limits (FUP) and have free 1 TB online cloud storage. Google Fiber is up to 1000 times faster than broadband speeds currently offered in India.

According to the Hindu newspaper top officials in the IT Ministry, the discussions are at an initial stage. “We are keen to partner a company like Google in furthering the Digital India plan. Modalities have to be worked out,” the official said.

One of the key issues being discussed is whether Google can be allowed to do the project without having to acquire a telecom licence. Google is not keen on going through the process of taking a telecom license which is a major hassle in India. As such Google currently plans to roll out the fibre network only in a small area as a showcase project.

However big telecom companies such as Airtel and Reliance are said to be opposing the project. They apparently say that if Google wants to offer broadband here then they should take a telecom license like all other companies. Airtel and Reliance already offer broadband services in India though the speed is much lower.

Google has launched a similar programme in the US called Google Fiber where it provides broadband internet and television to a small area. The service was first introduced in Kansas City. The plans for these can be seen here https://fiber.google.com/cities/kansascity/plans/ In February 2014, Google announced that it had chosen another 34 cities as candidates for expansion.

When contacted, Google India spokesperson said that the company continuously engages with the Centre on various programmes. The spokesperson did not comment specifically on the fibre project. However, IT Ministry officials said that some experts from Google’s US operation are expected in India to evaluate the project.

i rly do not think google will be able to do their project in India because Indian Official Desnt care about Digitization they just care about their own pocket.

Re: 1000mbps Google Fibre May Come to India Soon

I really dont think Airtel or the DOT will allow anyone to sell anything without FUP,coz that will just stop Airtel and the rest from looting Indian users as they have been so freely doing in the name of Broadband and FUPs.

Either this will killed before it is implemented,or they will charge a lot.

Airtel is the inventor of FUP and FUP is an Indian invention, we should be proud of this.

Re: 1000mbps Google Fibre May Come to India Soon

with all the net neutrality hoola baloo going on, recently with airtel showing off bruises, its interesting how the GFibre fares - time will tell - heart says it should happen but mind says different story regarding sustainability

Airtel did not invent FUP. As far as I remember, Comcast (US) invented FUP and Airtel copied it. But I think Comcast had to withdraw FUP after sometime due to regulatory action.

Re: 1000mbps Google Fibre May Come to India Soon

This comment by BABAji sums it up quite well..
Airtel had donated huge amounts to the present Govt, so they will not let them allow google to offer broadband without the telecom license.. !
Not to forget the Current ruler of India, Ambani, through Jio services will want to control the internet.. He will never allow this.

Re: 1000mbps Google Fibre May Come to India Soon

We should always hope for the best. I am ready to file petition for it. If google wanted to come to imdia. In our country we need to fight for our rights. Lets see if there will be any positive outcomes on this. I think Bjp wont miss such chance. Airtel has created monopoly in many states.

Petetion?! Are you serious?

I don't know whether something like that would even get through the Indian PIL court. As Google is a private company. Also, nobody have so much time to do that. Also, the big companies like airtel etc have got complete law houses working for them day and night.
You won't stand a chance even for a second.

Preciselly public interest letigation. I.e p.i.l in order to full fill what promised by bjp. Have you read article or new about digital india. Go read it. We can ask government to bring google and they are willing to come over here. We are a group and many are lawyers and they know better. We can do that. We dont need to think over it.
Thanks for comments.
