Tags: News
Telecom service provider Tata Docomo has entered into a partnership with New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to offer Wi-Fi services from the first week of July in Connaught Place area of the national capital.

Covering more than 4 kms, the deployment of Wi-Fi hotspot would ensure seamless connectivity in the inner and outer circles of the area, Tata Docomo said in a statement.

The first 20 minutes of the service would be free of cost and after that one has the options of buying a plan online or through purchase of scratch cards, starting from Rs 20 for 40 minutes, Rs 30 for 60 minutes and Rs 50 for 100 minutes, it said.

Further, customers would get 'one-time password' to avail the service.

"With these services we are targeting business and non-business visitors who increasingly need connectivity with higher speeds across multiple devices," said Avinash Gabriel, Chief Operating Officer, Wi-Fi Business, Tata Docomo.

Connaught Place, now known as Rajiv Chowk, is a prominent place in the national capital where thousands of people visit every day for business and shopping purposes.

NDMC Chairman Jalaj Shrivastava said: "Enriching facilities such as Wi-Fi connectivity across Connaught Place showcase the futuristic path NDMC has taken to bring the city at par with international standards".

Tata Docomo already provides such facilities in other public areas such as Delhi Domestic and T3 International Airport and Feroz Shah Kotla Cricket Stadium.
