Since the past few months, a small team from Alphabet's X has been working with the local telco, AP State FiberNet in Andhra Pradesh to improve internet connectivity in the state. In order to do so, the AP govt and the local telco are working on an AP Fiber Grid initiative whose aim is to connect 12 million households and thousands of businesses to the internet by 2019. To make the initiative successful, the AP Fiber Grid initiative will use the Free Space Optical Communications (FSOC) technology developed by a team at X, Alphabet's moonshot factory.
