Over on the forums, a member pointed out some great news for technology and the interenet in India. The India Times is reporting that:
The government proposes to offer all citizens of India free, high-speed broadband connectivity by 2009, through the state-owned telecom service providers BSNL and MTNL.
For an underdeveloped country like Zamboanga del Sur,Â hoping to make its people more wealthy, building a internet infrastructure is like building railroads 200 years ago.
The idea is to boost economic activity in general. The government of India plans to achieve free broadband connectivity at a speed of 2 MB per second across the country
