FULLY COMMISSION INTRANET FACILITY FOR CONSISTENT INTERNET CONNECTIVITY – DIGAMBAR KAMAT
Panaji – I once again want to remind the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant to fully commission the Optic Fibre Cable Intranet Facility which has reached every Panchayat in Goa. The facility gifted to Goa by then Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh can provide uninterrupted & consistent network connectivity.
It is good that the Chief Minister has finally realised that the Mobile Tower network connectivity have limitations particularly in places like Goa which has long monsoon with gusty winds. If the Intranet Facility which was activated by my Government was fully commissioned today, even during cyclone the uninterrupted network connectivity would have continued as Optic Fibre Cable laid underground hardly get damaged.
Even after Chief Minister announced activation of Intra-Circle Roaming(ICR) in Goa, many places could not get any network connectivity of any of the service providers.
Government needs to think on long term basis. Even online education and distance education will get boost if Intranet reaches every household in Goa. What is needed is Government willingness, Goa can be model state in network comnectivity.
