Starting today, people visiting MG Road, Sadar Bazaar, Sector 29 market and Sarhaul Village can enjoy free Wi-Fi sessions on their devices. The Wi-Fi is open to all users, who have a Wi-Fi compatible device. When in proximity to the Wi-Fi, a user has to just enable Wi-Fi in his/her device settings and search for ‘MCG powered by Airtel’.

Users can then easily connect to the service by following some simple steps. Users will be able to enjoy a free daily quota limit of 30 minutes per day per device. One can continue to use the Wi-Fi services post 30 minutes also, however they will be charged a nominal amount. While Airtel users will be charged on their data plan/packs, non-Airtel users will be able to buy online vouchers with affordable deals. Airtel customers can connect to the Wi-Fi using the Airtel Hangout app also.

Dhruv Bhagat, CEO – Delhi/NCR, Bharti Airtel was also present at the event and said, “We are very happy to partner with the Gurgaon administration and enable citizens in the Millennium City to experience world-class internet services on the go.”

Airtel had won the mandate for this Wi-Fi launch from MCG last year making it the most preferred partner to enable residents in the Millenium City to enjoy a world-class internet experience.
