To make this possible, Jionet has harnessed its superior network capacity along with an excellent deployment of specially designed, state-of-the-art Wi-Fi access points (APs) that will cover the entire stadium with a seating capacity of minimum 20,000.

City (Stadium) No. of APs Stadium Capacity
Bangalore (M. Chinnaswamy Stadium)  743  35,000
Dharmashala (Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium)  558  23,000
Kolkata (Eden Gardens)  1101  68,000
Mohali (Punjab Cricket Association Stadium)  627  26,000

The spectators are commonly faced with issues regarding connectivity during the matches as mobile networks aren’t able to handle such large data traffic. But with Jionet the rules of the game will change – the connectivity will not only be adequate but will actually be many times faster than experienced before. As a result of which, spectators will be able to share their story ball by ball, surf, stay connected on social networking sites, and much more.

God, this is shocking! I guess avoid people must have also sent some IT guys with the goons to take out the cards and now they must be analyzing what hardware and technology JIO is using. in a minute so they’ll replace the cards in no time though. Hope police can catch the culprits and find who’s behind this.
