Lukup Media, India's first on demand and multi-screen TV service today announced that it has received the Unified License to launch data services across the country. This will enable the company to offer internet access along with television, video on demand and other services through a single connection to consumers.
Lukup Media is also running field trials on a new Gigabit wireless platform that operates outside the licensed spectrum and can be used to offer 1 Gbps network connections to buildings and apartment complexes. This is also expected to significantly reduce the cost of creating network infrastructure and thus lower the cost of internet access.
"While we use optic fiber on the last mile managed by cable networks to reach homes now, the new Gigabit wireless platform will enable us to reach consumers where we do not have partnerships with local networks and will enable us to operate in semi-urban and rural areas where telecom network infrastructure is poor", commented Kallol Borah, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Lukup Media.
