Jan 17: The Internet Service Providers Association of India (ISPAI) has chipped in with suggestions on behalf of its members operators on the draft NTP-2011. The association has laid stress on the fact that meeting the goal of 'Broadband on Demand' will require a light regulatory touch that harnesses the power of the private sector to invest in broadband, while effectively using the Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF) to encourage deployment of converged telecommunications services in low population density areas where investment in infrastructure exceeds possible returns on investment.
8ISPAI has suggested that the deployment of a mix of different technologies is necessary to meet India's needs. Thus, upgrading existing networks and expanding India's fiber and mobile broadband infrastructure will be essential if India's ICT development goals are to be met.
8As far as support from USOF is concerned, it should be available uniformly to all ISPs which are capable of providing Internet/Broadband Services in the rural/remote areas without any artificial barriers.
8It may be noted that the government has requested feedback from the industry before the National Telecom Policy, 2012 gets finalized in a few months' time.
