9:00 AM -- A US$3.5 billion government project to provide fiber broadband connections to 840 million people in 250,000 village communities in India is underway.

The National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN) plan, which is being funded by the country's Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF), is set to create major opportunities for network builders and infrastructure vendors as the Government attempts to take broadband connectivity and digital communications services to the masses.
