Kerala Government Announces New Project To Offer Internet For All

God’s own country Kerala is not only popular for its culture as well as for the nature beauty, but also for the 100 percent literacy rate. Well, now the state is going to touch yet another milestone, as the Government of the state announces a new project which will offer internet for every single home across the state.

The minister of the state – Thomas Isaac, announced that the internet is a right for every single person of Kerala and the government will provide free internet service to 2 million poor households across the state.

To make this in reality, the government announces Kerala Fibre Optic Network (KFON) and gives the final nod for ₹1,548 crores and the finance minister confirms the project will be completed by the end of next year.

The project is coming with a joint venture of the state’s power utility Kerala State Electricity Board, or KSEB, and Kerala State IT Infrastructure Ltd. Its worth to mention that with the new announcement Kerala became the first state to make the internet as a basic human right across the country. Having said that, countries like Finland, Estonia, France, Spain, Greece, and Costa Rica are others who have made the internet a basic human right.
