In less than 20 days since the Department of Telecom (DoT) kicked off the registration of app providers and PDOAs more than 30 PDOAs and app providers have been registered by DoT. As per the data from Saral Sanchar, the body has issued 22 PDOA registrations and 12 app provider registrations. The names of the PDOAs and app providers remain unknown for the time being.
Post the registration, entities are to approach the Central Registry being handled by C-DOT for certification of their system and application software. As per C-DOT data, as of today, the body has certified 14 PDOAs and 7 app providers with 7 access points already deployed.
Meanwhile, Delhi-based start-up i2ei yesterday launched its PDO services under the PM-WANI initiative claiming to be the first PM-WANI compliant Wi-Fi company in India. The company has also taken the lead by conducting the 1st PDO partner conference in Delhi last week. The company is looking to make PDOs a reality with a MagicBox hotspot.
The company will offer residents in South Delhi to access 50Mbps high-speed internet speed and unlimited internet at Rs 5 per day with no registration,
