RBI means “rural broadband initiative” and is a government sponsored program to get broadband internet out to rural customers. Altra Internet is not funded by the government directly, but is still able to bring this service to many rural customers. Primarily if we can see a Vodafone signal and we know a suitable tower is nearby we should be able to connect you. Sometimes 2degrees mobile phones provide an indication that access is available as 2degrees use Vodafone to extend their coverage in some area's.
N.B. No phone line needed.
