A startup based in Bengaluru can give a tough competition to Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio. This startup is offering 1GB of data at a price of Rs. 1. The name of this startup is WiFi Dabba and it started in the year 2016. In the same year, Jio also launched its service. The purpose of WiFi wagon is to provide reliable and affordable service to the customers and to fix the problems related to connectivity.
Karam Laxman, CEO of Wi-Fi Dabba, told The Indian Express that when he started, his main goal was to provide connectivity at the end and make data available at a low cost. So he acted as an ISP aggregator and bought connections from those using fiber technology.
At the time when Jio brought the data revolution in the country with cheaper cost of data and the cost of data in the country was the lowest in the world, at that time it was too much for many users and they stayed away from data. The WiFi box thought about it and found that it was a fiber problem and brought a solution called SuperNodes for it. According to Karam Laxman, he found that fiber is the main issue and developed a solution supernodes between it.
How will the company provide data at a low price?
Karam Laxman said that the availability and access to the Internet is higher because of third party hardware, software and network infrastructure. Apart from this, companies have to bear the cost of digging the land for laying fiber optic, which further increases the price.
However, the wifi wobble saves costs because it does not use third party hardware, software, or infrastructure. According to Laxman, this startup company has its own hardware, software and networking and helps the company save the vendor margin.
First service will start in Bengaluru
The company has not yet launched its service in India, the company plans to debut in Bengaluru first. After this, it will be made available on demand basis in other cities of the country. Karam Laxman said that any user can connect to the wifi wifi signal and log in with the help of his mobile number and OTP.
