The National Optical Fiber Network is the largest rural connectivity project of its kind in the world and seeks to link 600 million rural citizens across 25,000 village-level bodies over three years. The project aims to offer government services to all Indians online and through smartphones and transform India from a predominantly agrarian society to a digitally empowered knowledge economy. In Idukki district in the southern state of Kerala is where the rural broadband network was commissioned.
