Microsoft in partnership with Eros Now has successfully delivered the internet, as a month-long pilot project, to the customers in the low bandwidth geographies in rural areas across India.

The project leveraged Microsoft Azure, content from Eros Now and commerce capabilities from Novopay, to drive the reach in remote geographies. Under the project, Eros Now uploaded content to a central content repository, built on Microsoft Azure that can quickly process large volumes of data to distribute to hubs.

Going forward, the companies will expand the test to additional providers.
