The Centre, to give boost to broadband penetration, has decided to own and operate an optical fibre base through which different operators can provide a range of services, said Union Minister of State for Communications and IT Milind Deora after inaugurating the Broadband Tech India Conference here on Friday.

“Keeping future users of this network in mind this will to be a non-discriminatory access to all types of information and services. This network would be the way governance will be delivered to the whole nation reaching out to the last village. The money for setting up this network would come from the Universal Service Obligation (USO) Fund to which all telecom operators are contributing a part of their revenues. This would be a high speed network in which the government would partner with the telecom industry to plan an entire eco system that will transform the country,” he said.

Addressing the conference, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman J. S. Sarma said the telecom sector had the potential to play a tremendous role in bringing about inclusive growth in the country as it marched onwards to become, as predicted by many international organisations, the world's biggest economic power.

Stressing on the role of information and communication technology sector, Mr. Sarma said the two requirements in this regard were an infrastructure and an ability to use this infrastructure. Here, the need was for wireline and wireless infrastructure, he pointed out.

Speaking about the remarkable growth registered by the telecom sector, he said if the incentives given by TRAI for rural outreach were accepted, it would be even faster.
