WifiDabba Network Map

The Network

Not enough people have access to broadband internet. Wifi Dabba's mission is to fix that. We're starting in our hometown and our goal is nothing short of providing every single citizen of this city access to the fastest, cheapest and most reliable internet service ever.

The existing system is broken.

  1. Low speeds

    25mbps is the average broadband speed. We can do far better.

  2. High prices

    98% of mobile data plans are prepaid, why aren't broadband plans?

  3. Poor availability

    The poorer you are, the less available broadband is to you.

Less than 7% of India has broadband access

common issues we face daily

Wifi Dabba network

We manage thousands of connections ranging from homes and offices to large complexes.

Our bills vary wildly

Prices are 5x lower in the center of the city than they are at the periphery.

Speeds are abysmal

The true speed delivered is never what was promised by the ISP.

Unfair data caps

Data is arbitrarily capped by the ISPs and you have to pay much more to get, well... not much at all.

Bad service

More like lip service. Cables get cut often and fixed after much delay.

Legacy infrastructure

You don't get APIs, firewall control, Public IPs or anything else really.

The problem lies underground.

The broadband industry is literally digging itself into a deeper hole.

The core undeground network that powers ISPs worldwide involves expensive, time-consuming and heavily regulated digging of tunnels to lay optical fiber cables beneath the surface.

COST

TIME

3 years

To dig and lay trenches

REGULATIONS

Licenses, rules and requirements

90% of your bill is digging costs.
