How to get paid in India: The hidden cost of internet access
India’s top internet provider has launched an app called CPA charge that allows consumers to pay for access to the internet from their mobile phones.
The app, which is available in India and several other countries, is an attempt to help the country’s poorest people, who often rely on public Wi-Fi networks for internet access.
According to an official website for the service, the CPA charges “will help people connect to the Internet for free, and will help them to access information online.”
While the app offers users a “direct link” to the CPO website for free access, the app does not provide users with any other information.
Users can register for the CPM app, where they can enter their contact details and choose a payment method, including a credit card.
To get started, users can simply click the “Register Now” button and follow the instructions.
CPA charge has been available in several countries including the US, Canada, the UK, France, India, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea and Australia.
While India’s telecoms regulator has already banned the app, it is yet to be rolled out to all customers.
However, CPA is yet another attempt by the telcos to improve their business in India, where mobile internet has been severely underutilized and access to a high number of low-cost internet connections is difficult.
Despite the restrictions, CPM is likely to be the next step in improving the availability of internet in India.
In an interview with Business Insider earlier this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “We need to make our country more affordable.”
With India’s economy struggling to grow at its current pace, Prime Minster Modi has promised to build a new Internet Infrastructure Fund to help improve the availability and quality of connectivity in the country.
