Microsoft is discussing to offer Internet via TV in jharkhand by utilising the bandwidth of TV cables along with set top boxes. The responsibility of providing television to households will be on the department of information and technology. Feasibility study will be done by Microsoft’s team who is going to be visiting jharkhand by the end of January.
The IT Secretary, Sunil Kumar Barnwal pointed out that he had met Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella along with his team members a couple of months ago asking them to explore options in jharkhand. He said “We wanted Microsoft to understand that jharkhand is on path of digital revolution and instead of focussing on big cities like bangalore and hyderabad only they can also consider ranchi in their list of priority.”
