Staying connected in the National Capital isn't all that much of an issue these days. With good 3G and 4G connectivity across the entire city, you're never disconnected from the Net. However, not everyone wants to use their mobile data at all times. In order to help those of you who ration your data, the PWD is coming up with 11,000 free wifi hubs at bus stations, marketplaces and other points of interest across the city. As per reports, the installation of wifi hubs should be complete by the end of December 2019.

What's the update?

In order to make Delhi a more developed city, one with better connectivity, the PWD is finally going ahead with this move. Connectivity doesn't just mean getting people from one place to another but it is also counted in terms of mobile and internet connection, which is the need of the hour. As India's population gets younger, their needs get more futuristic.

This is just one small step in the right direction, one that allows them to cater to the needs of a wider target group. With the new wifi hubs, Delhiites will stay connected to the internet like never before. It's time to say goodbye to all the connectivity drops you've been facing!

Where will the 11,000 hubs come up?

Though the plan for implementing 11,000 hubs has been around for a while, it never got executed. So, we're glad it is happening now.

The main areas where the hotspots will come up will be- at bus stops(both small and big), major market places across the national capital and at public parks. Since all of these areas see a high footfall, it is highly likely that the move will be an immediate success.

How can you use it?

As per the rules, each user can avail of 15GB free data per month. After you register with a particular phone number at any of the hotspots, the phone's wifi will automatically snap on to the nearest source. Since you only have to sign up at one location to use it everywhere, the initial steps are rather easy.

Apart from that, the network will have a range of up to 50-60 meters, so even if you're in the vicinity, you can make use of free internet. Now who would give that up?
