i2e1 launches PDO Wi-Fi access points; offering 50Mbps unlimited internet at Rs. 5 per day
Delhi-based startup i2e1 has announced the launch of Public Data Offices (PDO) Wi-Fi access points in India. This has been launched as a part of the Government of India’s PM-WANI initiative.
At each PDO, subscribers will get 50Mbps with no data limit. It also requires no registration. The cost of a subscription is also really low and just costs Rs. 5 per day.
The company opened the first PDO in Kusumpur Pahadi in South Delhi. The PDO is running by a grocery store BABA General Store who claimed to earn Rs. 500 in the first day itself.
The company aims to create over 1 million Wi-Fi hotspots across India by offering instant and easy access to high-speed and reliable internet through their TRAI approved devices.
PM-WANI initiative aims to provide cheap and reliable internet access to millions of Indian people. Internet is now important as it helps in education and learning new skills. This scheme was announced back in December 2020 to boost internet access across the country.
