New model to be planned by Trai for Broadband Roll out

NEW DELHI: Telecom regulator Trai has sought comments from stakeholders on a new model to operationalise the national optical fiber network Bharat Net which aims to connect all 2.5 lakh panchayats in the country through broadband.

“Some views regarding the implementation have been raised and therefore the authority looked into one more possible alternate model — Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) model,” the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) said in a statement.

“The authority has come out with this consultation paper to discuss issues related to strategies to find best model of implementation for Bharat Net,” it said, adding that the stakeholders can submit views by December 7 on the way the BOOT model should be operated.

The first model used to deploy the National Optical Fib re Network (NOFN) was led by centre public sector units, under which a special purpose vehicle Bharat Broadband Network Limited (BBNL) was formed and optical fiber were to be deployed by BSNL, MTNL and Rail Tel.
