Great news for people travelling through Delhi Metro as the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) plans to put an end to the poor network connectivity woes of all passengers travelling through several routes of the metro network.
DMRC plans to end the call drop and poor network connectivity issues for good! How many times does it happen that you’re on your way to work and your boss calls, but the merciless metro network forces you to either call them another 3-4 times before giving up or pausing your commute in the middle to step out and make that one call. Who doesn’t hate that?
People face network issues in the metro all the time, especially the ones commuting through the newly commissioned Phase-3 routes on Magenta Line which conects Janakpuri West to Botanical Garden and Pink line which connects Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar. Commuters often struggle to get mobile connectivity and mostly where the metro line is underground.
The call drop issues are not new for Delhi Metro as commuters have been facing them since quite some time now, especially in the underground lines. DMRC is trying to tackle the issue by putting up network boosters at stations where the problems have been identified.
Speaking to a prominent news media company a senior DMRC official said that a team of around 300 people is working to install signal boosters on the routes and the issue may get resolved by the end of next month. The installation work for these boosters is being carried out during the night since it is not possible to do the same during the day (operational hours).
There are 15 underground stations on Magenta line and DMRC says that it has already rectified the issue at 10 stations.
