Many countries have a public wiFi zones where people can sit in a park and access internet. Is there such a facility available in any part of india and if so how can we use it? Does it need any kind of authentication or password? Why isn’t the government establishing more of such wiFi zones in India?
What are some of the public WiFi zones provide by Indian government?
Hi Cunningham, there are several facilities in India where public WiFi can be access. One such locale is in Bangalore, India. The facility is called Namma WiFi can provide Indians with free internet access using their laptops, tablets, or smartphones. To avail of the service, users just need to have an authentication password sent via mobile phone after he registers on the WiFi network. Speed is just 520 Kbps. And usage will be limited for just 3 hours per day. It will be up around 50 Mb of data allocation daily. In 2010, the city of Mysore became the very first city to provide WiFi to the Indians. Aside from these two cities, Delhi also boasts of public WiFi access but with a nominal fee.
