HYDERABAD: The Internet Service Providers Association of India (ISPAI) has asked the government to unbundle last mile connectivity to achieve the target of 40 million Internet users by 2010.

Besides this, the ISPAI wants the government to make major regulatory changes like virtual private network and broadband, besides other issues.

ISPAI said “ If the government were to achieve the target of 20 million broadband users and 40 million Internet users by 2010, a collective effort was necessary and this calls for unbundling the last mile.”

The ISPAI said it was willing to invest in appropriate expenditure and come out with an revenue sharing model on the last mile issue even while making sure that the telecom operators did not become loss making entities.

They also said the new regulation with regards to virtual private networks would help the government get an additional $79 million in total revenues.
