“Supernodes are revolutionary not because of what they cost but how they compare in price with legacy technology,” said Karam Lakshman, CEO and CTO of Wifi Dabba. “Fibre is the key word in the ISP fraternity currently but, it is also the most expensive part of this ecosystem. On the contrary, Supernodes will cost us 1/10th of what it would cost to set up a legacy ISP that uses fiber,” he added. WiFi Dabba wants to make internet cheaper and accessible but it has challenges ahead.

In order to make its internet service seamless, WiFi Dabba has developed in-house hardware, software and networking. The company also added that this move helped save on vendor margins. WiFi Dabba is not a new company and it was founded in 2017. At the time of its launch, the company offered 200MB of data for just Rs 2. The startup backed by YCombinator has setup over 1,000 hotspots across the city of Bengaluru. It also claims that its services are used by over 10,000 co-living spaces in the city.
