Dabba, a decentralized physical infrastructure network (DePIN) aimed at providing affordable wireless data access to underserved populations, has announced the launch of its second campaign, allowing users worldwide to purchase Wi-Fi hotspots. This initiative follows a successful testnet phase that distributed over 1,500 hotspots to rural and semi-urban areas in India.

The latest campaign will offer over 10,000 Dabba Lite hotspots for purchase globally, with a target of selling more than 100,000 units by 2024. This move aligns with Dabba's vision to make cheap and accessible internet services available to underserved regions worldwide.

After purchasing the hotspots, network partners can deploy them across India, thereby expanding decentralized internet connectivity and providing affordable internet access to rural and semi-urban areas. Additionally, the DePIN service aims to alleviate data congestion in high-demand regions.

The live launch of Dabba's DePIN service on May 23, 2024, marks the beginning of hotspot purchases, preceding the planned token generation event (TGE) scheduled for July on the Solana blockchain. The token will facilitate a two-sided marketplace between data consumers and providers, supporting the development and maintenance of internet infrastructure. It will also incentivize contributors and stakeholders within the Dabba ecosystem.

India, with the second-highest number of internet users globally, has only 44% of its population connected to the internet, particularly in rural and semi-urban areas. Leveraging its expertise in providing internet services to underserved regions, Dabba has chosen India as its starting point for delivering decentralized internet services.

The company has previously played significant roles in India, including powering Google's public Wi-Fi deployments and collaborating with the Indian government to establish supportive legislation for its demand-based DePIN rollout.

Quick advancement in the provision of inexpensive internet

Dabba has led the way in providing consumers with quick and easy access to the internet ever since it launched. The company sold all 1,000 Dabba Lite hotspot devices in the first season (trial campaign) within days of the debut. Millions of Indians have received inexpensive internet connection thanks to the DePIN infrastructure.

In the intervening year, the company has connected over 15,000 distinct devices and marketed and installed 500 more hotspots. Furthermore, the hotspots have generated over $4,500 in money from their patrons and supplied over 390 TB of data through the DePIN infrastructure. By doing this, the world's most populous democracy hopes to meet the increasing demand for wi-fi users and lessen bandwidth congestion.

Dabba users may now utilize the recently introduced explorer to find current data hotspots and view current network performance in conjunction with the season two deployment. Data for the Dabba testnet, which has been running for the last two months, is originally provided by the explorer.

Dabba chooses to address issues in the actual world

The goal of launching Dabba hotspots is to address the issue of a dearth of reasonably priced and easily available wireless data. Users will be able to access Web 3 features like tokenization and wireless data via DePINs, which are made available by Dabba. More users will have access to the ecosystem thanks to the newest tokenization capabilities, which will guarantee that there is a real need for the service and that the business model can grow to meet demand.

To encourage early adoption of the platform, Dabba is offering enhanced Genesis rewards to users who join before the TGE event. Moreover, the platform aims to empower more than 150,000 Local Cable Operators (LCO) functioning as micro-Internet Service Providers (ISPs) throughout India, thereby establishing an unparalleled high-speed network across the nation.
