Google is set to release a new version of its Google Connect service in India, allowing people to connect their Google accounts with their local corporate network.
The move is a huge step forward for the Indian telecoms market, as the country’s telecom regulator has been struggling to roll out new networks.
In fact, the telcos have been unable to roll-out their networks for several years.
The new Google Connect will allow anyone who has access to their corporate network or corporate account to get on-the-go access to the services.
The company has said the new service will help it cut costs by up to 30 per cent.
This is the first time that the telco has rolled out an on-demand Google Connect, so it’s not clear if the service will be offered across the country or across India only.
For many people in India who do not have the financial means to pay for a monthly broadband package, this move will mean saving them some money.
Google said that the new Google Plus and Google Play will be coming soon, and the company will roll out the new platform in other countries.
