Mumbai gets world’s largest public Wi-Fi service

Comment

Today, Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis did something Delhi’s CM was boasting to do for past 2 years. Devendra Fadnavis has announced the phase 1 of Mumbai Wi-Fi with 500 WiFi Hotspots across various locations in #Mumbai.

With this announcement, Mumbai has got world’s largest public Wi-Fi service in India. Yes, you read it right.

He also announced that 1200 WiFi hotspots will become active by May 1, 2017. In the meantime, government officials will be monitoring the progress on connectivity and speed. So, next phase is going to be big to cover most of the Mumbai Area.

The not just thing, the government has also suggested people to share feedback/issues at #twitter handle @AS_Mum_WiFi.

He also shared the data of trial period held from January 2 to 8. About 23,000 users across the city signed up for the free Wi-Fi service and downloaded more than 2 Terabyte (TB) data.

While Delhi Government and its officials have been announcing Free Wi-Fi for Delhi for past 2 years, we have never seen any development in this. On the other hand, Maharashtra CM has quietly been working on everything with boasting.

I hope Kejriwal will learn something from this and will start working in place of just boasting and blaming.
