Telecom Commission: Telecom Commission seeks clarification on Trai data affordability solution - The Economic Times

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), which needs to revert to the TC in two weeks, had last December recommended an aggregator model and 100 MB of free data for mobile phone subscribers in rural or remote areas to give a thrust to the government's cashless economy agenda. Trai suggested that the Universal Services Obligation Fund (USOF) be used to foot the bill for providing government-incentivised free data schemes to rural subscribers.
