Abstract:  This paper mainly aims to explain about the telecom boom in India and throws light on the technologies of today and tomorrow. It briefly discusses about, how technologies are now starting to be available to connect every village and also it details challenges faced by the technologies in rural areas. With these in mind a total innovative business model was required to deliver Internet services to rural areas. In order to meet this need a company called n-Logue was incubated to significantly enhance the quality of life of every rural Indian by setting up a network of wirelessly connected internet kiosks in villages throughout India. The challenges from technology point of view are many. The systems that provide connectivity need to be relatively inexpensive if they are to be commercially deployed, given the lower incomes in rural areas compared to urban areas. This paper concludes by saying that with the help of drastic developments in technology sector, providing connectivity in rural areas is entirely possible today.
