“Over 100 crore people in the country are still deprived of Internet services,” Datawind Founder and CEO Suneet Singh Tuli said in a statement.
Tuli added that people in villages cannot spend Rs. 1,200 for Internet every year, that is why the company is planning to launch Internet at an annual subscription fee of Rs. 100.
