HYDERABAD: IT Minister KT Rama Rao on Wednesday directed officials to speed up the works to achieve the target of providing all households in Telangana with the broadband internet connection by December next year.
Addressing a review meeting with the officials, KTR said that there is a need to speed up the works for the broadband internet connection similar to that of Mission Bhageeratha works, aimed at providing drinking water connection to every household.
He further held discussions on the funds for the project, financial assistance being provided by the central government under Bharat Net along with the money required from the state government.
The Minister stated that revolutionary changes will take place in healthcare and education in rural areas with the internet connection to every house.
Currently, the fibre cables are being laid along water pipelines under the Digital Telangana project to ensure broadband internet connectivity to every household. A technology demonstration network in four villages of Maheswaram ‘mandal’ near Hyderabad will be made in the first week of January to showcase the changes.
