BSNL to set up WiFi hotspot services at 10 national monuments

By March 19th, 2015 AT 4:15 PM

BSNL-logoBSNL the broadband backbone of India will soon be setting up WiFi hotspot service at some of the famous historical monuments across India. Every year lacs of tourists visit India to experience its cultural diversity and historic monuments. Most of the tourists do not possess a local mobile sim card and thus do not have access to the internet and are deprived of basic connectivity. In an effort to resolve this BSNL will be providing WiFi hotspot facility starting with 10 historic monuments.

Monuments to get WiFi hotspot:

  • Taj Mahal – UP West circle
  • Fatehpur Sikri- UP West circle
  • Sarnath Temple- UP East circle
  • Konark Temple- Odisha circle
  • Jagannath Temple- Odisha circle
  • Bodh Gaya- Bihar circle
  • Shore Temple- Tamil Nadu circle
  • Hampi- Karnataka circle
  • Khajurao- MP circle
  • Thanjaur- Tamil Nadu circle

Note- It is not clear at this point whether the access to internet will be capped to a certain quota of free data usage per day or be available through vouchers sold by BSNL at the monuments.

I presume more around than in Shri Jagannath temple. It would be great if in the name of wifi in and around Shri Jagannath temple they provide wifi around Singha Dwara which is always bustling with activity whenever anyone visits the temple complex.


Its a very great news that BSNL is introducing this
Hope they do it on paid basis and not for free and by which the purpose for which it is built would get fulfilled or Rest all knows
I didnot understand why only Northen side because even lakhs of public visit Mumbai why not this place?

Sadly, it must be due to MTNL operating in Mumbai that BSNL is unable to provide WiFi at any monuments in Mumbai. It must be the same reason for Delhi monuments not being found on the list.
