Telecom operators need to support the rollout of public wi-fi hotspots to gain edge in the technology space, Niti Aayog special secretary Yaduvendra Mathur said on Friday. A new set of players should be allowed to resell Internet services through yesteryear PCO type of set-up, according to Trai. These will be referred to as public data offices. Telecom operators opposed the public wi-fi model recommended by Trai.
