By February 8th, 2015 AT 7:41 PM

MTS had last year started offering free WiFi in Metro rails by entering into a partnership with Rapid Metro Rail Gurgaon Limited (RMGL). Originally MTS had received the green signal for setting up WiFi in the three stations of Agra, Ahmedabad and Varanasi under the digital India initiative led by PM Modi. The work of setting up these WiFi hotspots is charted to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2015. The stations of New Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore already have WiFi facility up and running.
