Broadband revolution in India

Digital Opportunity reports:
"The (Indian) government along with Nasscom and private industry associates will set up 20 IIIT's (Indian Institute of Information Technology) in various parts of the country for which the Planning Commission has already made a provision of Rs 100 crores. The government will ensure broadband accessibility to almost every citizen in countryside, covering 97% of its geographical area by 2012."
I wonder where its neighbors will be during that time. I only hope not on the other side of the digital divide.
