From AlwaysOn: A radical way to Podcast :: AO.
Sify, india's largest ISP provider, is launching podcasting in India. as a matter of fact i would say they are introducing India to podcasting. Other ways are ok like recording the audio on a portable device or on your desktop PC. But think of people being empowered with a simple thing like their mobile phone. People can call a number given by the local mobile operator. The mobile number responds with an IVRS and on saying a particular word, you can start recording yuor podcast. This is uploaded on your server space. This is a great idea that empowers people at no additional cost for trying this service.
I don't know whether "no additional cost" means "free" (in the pilot stage). That would be very interesting.
