The Study Report titled " Extra Mile-Walking the Talk on Rural Broadband " is extremely timely and relevant. This excellent report focuses on various issues before deployment of sustainable rural broadband, various technological alternatives, the relevant broadband services, different business models as well as funding options etc. All these are discussed keeping in mind the fact that rural ARPUs are typically quite low.
This compilation has innovatively attempted to examine the above issues through the practical lens of extensive case studies of various relevant networks and using the wealth of information available in many ITU/World Bank/OECD/Broadband Commission/TRAI reports on the subject. In addition, ideas from some innovations in the new cost effective Access technologies have been illustrated. In the end a sustainable business model based on 5Ps (People-panchayat-public-private partnership) which is under implementation commercially has been illustrated.
