Another 23,000 Wi-Fi hotspots in strategic locations across India, including tourist and heritage sites, public places and in more rural areas will be added soon thanks to an agreement with BSNL.
BSNL’s public Wi-Fi services were launched in February 2015. Initially rolling out two Wi-Fi hotspot zones in areas within the city of Varanasi, BSNL has since established further Wi-Fi hotspot zones in Hyderabad, around the Hussain Sagar Lake, and in more than 80 key tourist locations, including the Taj Mahal.
BSNL is also growing its footprints in more rural areas, where more than 4,000 Wi-Fi hotspots have already been set up. Its total network is expected to grow to more than 50,000 hotspots over the next 6 months.
iPass Global Wi-Fi is the worlds largest WI-Fi network, with more than 68 million hotspots around the globe, at airports, hotels, train stations, convention centers, outdoor venues, inflight, and more.
