The Solution: Scheme for Muft WiFi Hotspot for Colleges in India
At Muft Internet, we believe every student needs to be empowered with high speed Internet access.
We believe that this could have a major impact of the average grades of our college as we enable the students with free information access. The long term effect of this is our country taking one more step towards an information economy.
We have worked on a scheme with various states governments, Internet services providers and colleges advertisers to start WiFi Hotspots for colleges in India.
At such colleges, students will get access to unlimited high speed, neutral and free Internet access. Our WiFi Zones are free of cost to students (and to the colleges), however they will be sponsored by WiFi advertising. For instance; Free WiFi IIT by Parle G.
There has been a massively positive to response for this scheme as over 125 different colleges have signed up for our service. We expect this number to go up to 1000; and the deployment process will commence this year.
We expect that the average grade at such institutions will have a significant rise over a period of time because of the high speed free Internet access service. Our goal to transform India into a knowledge economy by focusing on education and information access.
