CSC SPV CEO Dinesh Tyagi said: "Based on the growth trend, data consumption on the CSC SPV network is estimated to have increased by close to 100 per cent till date."
He added: "Beside the surge of data consumption in rural areas, there has been a high demand of FTTH (Fiber to Home). In the month of March 20, more than 3 lakh subscribers registered across 50,000 Gram Panchayats for FTTH."
CSC also provides wifi hotspot in around 25,000 gram panchayats in the name of CSC Wi-fi Choupal services. According to the CSC data, Wi-Fi Choupal has more than 12 lakh registered subscribers who use this as a supplement to their mobile connection.
Tyagi added: "This clearly indicates the high appetite of internet data in rural areas, which in future can be pivotal in bridging Digital Divide and If nurtured with regular organic feed of educational and informational content rural India can be Digitally Empowered and Transformed."
