By November 15th, 2014 AT 7:23 PM

Delhi’s Connaught Place (CP) can now enjoy free Wi-Fi facility from coming Sunday. Tata Teleservices Limited and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) will be launching public wi-fi access in national capital on November 16.

“The Wi-Fi service in Connaught Place will cover more than 4.5 sq. km. The deployment of Wi-Fi hotspot will ensure seamless connectivity in the inner and outer circles of one of the most significant business and leisure centres in the city,” the company said.

“The launch is in sync with the emerging trends of data consumption especially by the younger generation for whom it is imperative to stay connected round-the-clock,” it said.

Tata Docomo has a strong portfolio of providing Wi-Fi hotspots in prominent public areas that has high footfalls. Some of these includes: Delhi Domestic and T3 International Airport, Feroz Shah Kotla Cricket Stadium. Two month ago, Telangana government had launched free Wi-Fi facility in 17 locations spreading 8 km in Hyderabad in partnership with Airtel for a period of three-month. It plans to extended the pilot implementation to the entire city by year-end.

Civic bodies should take initiatives in providing free Wi-Fi at public places like railway stations, bus depot and other public thoroughfare. This step will a long way in ensuring safety. Govt/authorities can ropein the ailing Telecom PSUs by giving subsidies. A nominal cess (or of similar kinds) can be on the services provided st the locations to offset revenue burden. Free Wi-Fi access should only be handled only by govt controlled agencies, to ensure no misuses of data-flow by entities with vested interests at these places
