Delhi’s Connaught Place to Have Public Wi-Fi From Sunday

Tata Docomo, the unified telecom brand of Tata Teleservices Limited, in association with the New Delhi Municipal Council, will launch public Wi-Fi access in Connaught Place in the national capital on Sunday, a company statement said on Friday.

The Wi-Fi service in Connaught Place will cover more than 4.5 sq. km. The inauguration will be done by Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, Najeeb Jung on Sunday afternoon. The deployment of Wi-Fi hotspot will ensure seamless connectivity in the inner and outer circles of one of the most significant business and leisure centres in the city, the statement added.

                                                                               The project was supposed to be launched in July, but got delayed due to various technical and logistical issues.

The delay in the project is also attributed to concerns raised by some security agencies who have their offices in Connaught Place, NDMC officials said.

They had raised objections that the transmission lines used for Wi-Fi services can interfere with their networks.

Earlier this year, Khan Market became the first public space in the city to officially get Wi-Fi access, also powered by Tata Docomo.

The visitors can avail the facility by filling in details such as email ID and mobile number. After that, a one-time password (OTP) will be received to connect to the Internet

After the free usage time is exhausted, the user will have to conduct a recharge using scratch cards which will be available at various shops in the area.
