Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF)
USOF was designed to create Optical Fiber Backbone for creating intra/inter district network connecting all DHQs and SDHQs (Blocks) in the State. The program envisages to lay OFC cable ( at least 24 F underground) and provide minimum 2.5 Gbps bandwidth capacity upgradeable upto 10 Gbps. USOF envisages to use Existing fiber and collocation facility for creation of this network to reduce CAPEX requirement. The bandwidth so created shall provide high speed connectivity within the State. In Tripura 51 PoPs were identified and presently 20 PoPs have been Commissioned.
