IT Minister Nara Lokesh said that by using FSOC technology the state will be able to use better bandwidth data to every house hold including houses in the tribal belt.
With broadband becoming the basic platform for provision of a number of services like e-governance, e-health, e-commerce, e-banking, universal access to internet is a must to empower the citizens. X engineers and experts on site will work together with APFSL personnel identifying and selecting suitable sites for deployment of the FSOC links. As a part of the partnership and to provide real time support for smooth operation of the project, X will also set up a local office with support of the State government.
X, a subsidiary of Alphabet, has signed a deal with an Indian state to offer internet connectivity that it describes as " fiber optic cable, but without the cable".

FiberNet's goal is to help bring broadband connectivity to 12 million households by 2019, and these boxes could give FiberNet a cost-effective alternative to traditional mobile towers and Wi-Fi hotspots, while also expanding existing broadband coverage to areas where traditional tech can't reach.
