Goa Aims To Use Centre’s Broadband Network By 2025

Goa is looking forward to shifting from Goa Broadband Network (GBBN) to the Centre’s Bharat Broadband Network Limited (BharatNet) by the year 2025. The department of information and technology (DoIT) recently extended the contract with United Telecoms Limited (UTL) for GBBN until July but is also having a discussion with the Centre for approving BharatNet.

“It is the department’s endeavour to process the implementation of BharatNet project by 2023,” said a DoIT official. “The long-term goal, which has to be achieved by 2025 is to endeavour to complete the implementation of BharatNet project.” The aim of the state government is to switch GBBN to BharatNet which will connect more than 200 government offices and village panchayats.

Rs 327.7 crore has been requested by DoIT from the Centre’s department of telecommunications in order to install the national optical fibre network in the state of Goa. DoIT had decided to leave GBBN as there were complaints about the stoppage of government websites and other problems. So, they now want a more secure service. This will improve the dependability and competence of government services.
