Jayalalithaa announces IPTV for all households, special wheelchairs
Ms. Jayalalithaa also announced her government’s decision to provide Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) to all households in Tamil Nadu, making use of the Internet Service Provider (ISP) licence obtained by the Tamil Nadu Arasu Cable TV Corporation.
She said since all the village panchayats in Tamil were to be linked under the Bharatnet scheme, the state government would utilise the ISP licence and provide quality internet service to all households. Besides IPTV will be provided along with hi-speed broadband services and other internet services.
The Chief Minister announced the creation of the Rs. 3,000-crore Tamil Nadu Fibernet Corporation to implement the Central government’s Bharatnet scheme to link village panchayats through Optical Fibre.
