Content delivery network Akamai technologies is in talks with Indian phone makers Karbonn, Spice, and Videocon to improve data connectivity by preloading content and its compression software on their handsets, Times of India reports. 

Akamai says that its compression software would speed up the data connectivity, and make the connection more secure, reliable, and affordable. Much like Google’s initiative with YouTube for India, where it is allowing users to save clips on their handset, saving them from the reoccurring data usage and charges, Akamai says that it will preposition certain content based on customer interest and surfing habits, catering users select data without internet access.

Additionally, the compression software would also provide data at low latency, allowing users to consume high-quality content at less bandwidth usage. The company says that its software automatically detects the nature of network a user is on, and provide them with content accordingly.

Furthermore, Akamai is also taking this opportunity to rope in other Indian companies that are working in areas of media delivery, application acceleration, security and enterprise cloud networking. Akamai acquired Chennai-based Valocious Networks last year.
