Tata Internet Services has plans to set up internet cafes in petrol pumps

Petrol pumps will now be home to swanky cyber cafes. Tata Internet Services, a company promoted by Tata Industries, has plans to set up internet cafes in petrol pumps (or petro-outlets) owned by Bharat Petroleum, all over the country.

TISL has plans to set up 40 cyber cafes in prominent metros across 12 cities in the country. The company's public internet cafes will soon be re-christened as 'Tata Nova Netzones'.

TISL had also partnered IndianOil to set up similar cafes in Mumbai, two of which are operational in Delhi. TISL's cyber cafes will be set up at locations with high density of traffic and their size would differ from every location. The company estimates the average expenditure per Internet centre to be within Rs 3 lakh.

The company will administer and operate the Internet centres. Revenues earned from the business will be shared by both the companies.

Along with provisioning for a huge amount of international bandwidth, Tata Internet will also make available substantial capacity of domestic bandwidth as a backbone. This will be with a focus to enable customers to run domestic e-business transactions on the Net.

Tata Power is building up a optic cable fibre network across Mumbai, where the power utility has a right of way. Once the OFC network is operational, TISL will offer broadband-based networking solutions as against the dial-up services available now.
