In an attempt to make Hyderabad a tech-savvy city in India and thus restore the faith of IT industries, MNCs, techies and youth, Telangana state government is swiftly taking steps to make Hyderabad a Wi-Fi city. As part of this project, government on Friday launched 17 Wi-Fi hotspots across the capital city in association with Airtel. This is going to deliver high-speed internet to denizens at “zero” cost upto 3 months.
The 17 Wi-Fi hotspots have been placed in Cyber Towers- Madhapur police station stretch, Cyber Towers-Kothaguda junction stretch and Cyber Towers-Raheja Mindspace circle covering 8 km under the pilot project. IT and Panchayat Raj minister KTR said, “This is just a tip of iceberg. We’re soon going to extend uninterrupted, full-fledged hotspot connectivity through out the city.”
Under this pilot period of 3 months, each user will get 750 MB data per day at speed of 4.2 MBPS. All one need to do is to select public Wi-Fi network from their mobile and he/she will get one-time password (OTP) to their mobile and with the help of it they can use 750 MB data per day per user. After 3 months, the service would be charged either by government or by Airtel. This news is certainly music to the ears of tech-savvy youth in city.
