Margao – Installation of Mobile Towers will not fully solve connectivity issue & will add to financial burden on Parents for Smart Phones. Intranet has reached every Panchayat in Goa and local Cable Operaters can take it to every household Television or Computer. Goa Broadband Network is the only way forward for online and distance education in Goa reiterated Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat.

The installation of Mobile Towers cannot solve the un-interrupted connectivity issue as the shadow area below the towers face network issues. Technically, as you go away from the mobile towers, the signals drop resulting in poor or no connectivity and frequent interruptions.

The Optic Fibre Cable network is more reliable and can provide the consistent connectivity. Goa is already equipped with the network from the pilot project gifted by former PM Dr. Manmohan Singh during my tenure as Chief Minister of Goa.

The optimum use of the Intranet will give employment opportunity to the local cable operators who are now facing problems due to DTH services. The online networking will reduce the burden on parents as well of buying high end Smart Phones. It will be easy to monitor the activity if the video transmission is received on home television or computer sets and misuse of mobile phones can be avoided.

I urge Chief Minister to change his priority and focus on full activation of the intranet services for streamlining online education in Goa.

Digambar Kamat
Leader of Opposition
