Speed Fetch app has tied up with Ozone WiFi Networks for free video downloads at speeds faster than 4G

NEW DELHI: 4G and 3G could well be passe if a new mobile application manages to deliver on its promise. Speed Fetch is offering free downloadable video content through WiFi hot spots across the country at speeds up to 60 Mbps, or higher than what 4G and 3G mobile connections offer today. While the company promises speeds up to 60 Mbps in ideal situations, executives said actual speeds can vary between 15 and 30 Mbps depending on the customer's location, signal strength at that location and the number of people using WiFi network at that time.

How offline internet could make the web more accessible to India's telecom user base

Last December, when Google started offering YouTube videos in the offline mode — downloaded online, but watched offline — it opened up a whole new and perhaps even strange way to experience the internet — offline. Some parts of banking — like account balance updates — don't require a user to be on a live connection. And the recent buyout of ZipDial by Twitter will give more people access to Tweets — like updates on World Cup matches — without users having to get online. A missed call to ZipDial will offer users updates on matches or Tweets by public figures, Bollywood stars and so on.

Soon, Delhiites could download videos without mobile internet

Come January, Delhi based Wi-Fi service provider Ozone Networks will allow phones without 2G and 3G connections to download content in collaboration with Speed Fetch. The service is currently in the test phase. Speed Fetch a first-of-its-kind micro caching solution will provide speedy access  without internet connectivity. Caching is the storage of Web files for later re-use at a point that can be more quickly accessed by the end user. “We are in the process of closing strategic partnerships with leading content owners and publishers and will be providing exclusive and premium content,” said Dipank Sharma, chairman, Speed Fetch.
