Our goal at Wifi Dabba is to lower the cost of broadband access in India. We use lasers instead of underground fiber as our core network and commodity components to dramatically lower the cost of deploying a broadband network. We've been running a beta network in Bengaluru, India for the last 9 months serving thousands of live customers. We're now ready to deploy a city wide network and provide cheap internet access to a million people.



The product

A core tenet of the Wifi Dabba network is distributed ownership. We believe that ownership of the internet should be in the hands of as many people as possible. If the cost of broadband tech drops, then more people can help pay for the cost of the network. And if you're one of the people paying for the distribution, we believe you should get revenue in return.

We've divided the city of Bengaluru into 100 regions called PoPs. Anyone can buy a region and get a share in the revenue from those subscribers.

  • Tell stories that matter Internet access changes lives and fortunes, help us tell stories that inspire people to participate in the proliferation of internet access.
