Google News article Google is expanding internet access to millions of rural and remote India’s poorest.
The internet giant has unveiled a new set of mobile and fixed broadband plans for people who are looking for a cheaper alternative to the high prices that come with broadband.
The new plans are the first to be rolled out to millions in India’s remote areas, where Google’s internet is a major business.
Google says the plans include a 1Gbps download speed, 10Mbps upload speed and 10Mbps download/upload speeds for people in rural areas.
The plans will cost Rs 10,999 ($15,999).
The company said people in the region can get access to the plans for Rs 5,999 per month.
Google also announced a new mobile broadband plan, which it says offers 100Mbps download speeds and 10GBps upload speeds for Rs 15,999 a month.
Google said the plans will be available in the country on February 24.
The company said it is looking to offer more plans across the country in the future.
Google said it will be offering the new plans in rural and semi-urban areas, with the plan costing Rs 10 a month for a 100Mbps connection.
The cost will drop to Rs 5 a month after that.
According to Google, it will also offer more services like voice calling and video streaming in the new mobile plans.
Google said it would also roll out a range of new and updated apps, including Google Play Music, YouTube, Google Maps and Google News.
The move comes as Google’s net profit fell by over $1 billion to $12.5 billion in the latest quarter, and the company is looking for ways to boost its business in the remote Indian market.
