Now, the central government aims to further digitization in India and bring ‘affordable and universal’ Internet access to every corner with the launch of the National Broadband Mission.

The mission, abbreviated to NBM, was launched by Union Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, as part of the National Digital Communications Policy 2018, as reported by IANS.

It’s going to help “fast track growth of digital communications infrastructure, bridge the digital divide, facilitate digital empowerment and inclusion, and provide affordable and universal access of broadband for all.

“Through the National Broadband Mission, we aim to provide broadband to all villages, increase mobile towers to 10 lakh, ensure 50 Mbps speed and increase mobile tower fiberization to 70%,” stated Mr. Prasad during the announcement.

National Broadband Mission will promote digital entrepreneurship in India and enable the growth of digital services in rural regions.



It will indirectly contribute to the ‘Digital India’ mission, ensuring the creation and delivery of low-cost, homegrown digital services.

The larger objective, however, is to propel India towards a ‘5 trillion dollar economy’ because our nation has extraordinary potential for business, said Mr. Prasad during the launch.
