Telecom firm Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is all set to join hands with the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to launch Wi-Fi facility for tourists at the Taj Mahal. According to the latest reports, the visitors will be able to avail free service across the campus from June 16 for the first 30 minutes. However, users would have to pay Rs. 30 for every additional hour.
If reports are to be believed, Fatehpur Sikri fort is next in the list for receiving public Wi-Fi. As per a report published on BSNLtariff.com, Sarnath Temple, Konark Temple, Jagannath Temple, Bodh Gaya and Khajurao are among other tourist attractions which would get the free Wi-Fi facility soon.
While BSNL is providing the bandwidth in Agra, Bengaluru based Quadgen is offering the wireless support. It is said that there were requests from tourists to facilitate Wi-Fi service, following which, ASI and BSNL took the drastic step. Last month, BSNL tied up with US based QuadGen Wireless Solutions Inc. to offer free Wi-Fi facility in Hyderabad.
