Bandwidth Exchange

Making it simpler to sell or buy bandwidth at wholesale prices
Muft Internet's Bandwidth Exchange is India's first ever wholesale bandwidth market that connects category-C Internet service providers and franchise operators with category-A/B Internet service providers.
This makes it easier for operators to buy bandwidth in a bulk at cheaper costs. Bandwidth Exchange also facilitates large and mid-sized Internet service providers offload large amounts of bandwidth.

Muft's WiFi Hotspot Software

Porwering India's Public WiFi Zones

Muft WiFi hotspot software for captive portal monetization is used at schools, colleges, cafes, hotels, and tourist spots.

We developed an in-house free-to-use (and soon to be open sourced) cloud controlled Radius (AAA) with mobile-OTP based authentication system that now powers thousands of WiFi zones across India. Built with a goal to enhance Captive Portal Monetization for Internet service operators.

Virtual ISP Program

Low cost WiFi hotspot prepaid network for public Internet access
Our virtual Internet service provider (VISP) project has been one of the most successful ideas we have ever invested in - Technology that converts small shops into ISP franchise owners.
Created with the goal of micro-distribution of Internet in places where entry barrier to Internet access is high - Muft's low cost prepaid WiFi network provides Internet access for as little as 15 for 3 hours or 75 per week.
