Facebook to help BSNL set up 100 wi-fi hotspots in rural India

BSNL-145x100Social media giant Facebook has come forward to facilitate state-run BSNL in setting up 100 Wi- Fi sites in rural areas of western and southern India. Facebook will spend Rs 5 crore per annum for sponsoring these 100 Wi-Fi hotspots in the country. The hotspots are being set up by BSNL-selected vendor Quad Zen. Facebook is only sponsoring them and not taking any revenue share. Quad Zen will set up these hotspots and handle sales. There is revenue share model between BSNL and Quad Zen.

The agreement between Facebook and BSNL is for three years and it can be further extended for two more years. BSNL has also received interest from Member of Parliaments for setting up WiFi hotspots in villages which they have adopted under Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) to make it a model village by 2016.

Under commercial model, Quad Zen will set up 2,000 Wi-Fi hotspots in West and Southern part of the country and Trimax will set up 500 hotspots in North India. Read More
