NEW DELHI: Low-cost internet connectivity and wireless web access products provider DataWind Inc. has inked a partnership with Telenor to offer free unlimited bundled internet browsing for one-year. 



This offer is available across six telecom circles namely Maharashtra, Gujarat, Bihar & Jharkhand, UP (East), UP (West), Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, where Telenor offers commercial mobile services.



?This is a very exciting development for DataWind in India; we are making the internet more easily accessible to millions of people across the country, like never before. By broadening our internet service coverage, we can add more customers to our already fast-growing customer base and, in turn, increase our revenue stream. We are confident we now have all of the key building blocks in place ? the product range, inventory, distribution network and now India-wide internet service coverage ? to drive accelerated growth,? said Datawind CEO and president Suneet Singh Tuli.



?Our customers will be able to use any of our devices to browse the internet in all the six circles, where Telenor has its network. Through this new partnership, we have strengthened our market position as an organisation that thrives for consistently bringing down costs for connectivity, both in terms of product range and internet access for emerging economies. We continue to move closer to our goal of bringing the next billion people online,? he added.



Telenor India chief product officer Amaresh Kumar said, ?We are delighted to partner with DataWind to offer affordable Internet services to customers. Telenor offers Sabse Sasta and value for money voice and Internet services. Products like these are step towards achieving our Internet for All ambition and empower customers with benefits of being connected. Last year Telenor had brought a paradigm shift in the market by offering service based Internet packs instead of volume of data used. Such innovative Internet services are used by 24 per cent of Telenor?s subscribers.?
