The Internet

There is a separate index for all communications services for Mumbai.


Internet services came to India in 1988. Funded jointly by the UNDP and the Department of Electronics, the first service provider was the country-wide ERNET project. Academic institutions were the first clients- first mail, followed soon after by all internet services. As a result, academic and research institutes were the first to serve information through the World Wide Web. Commercial services were started by the VSNL in 1995. Secondary service providers now operate value added services over communication channels leased from VSNL.
