Free WiFi:NDMC ties up with MTNL for proper execution of the project


With its ambitious project of extending Wi-Fi in Connaught Place and Khan Market losing prominence because of poor availability, New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has now tied up with Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) in a new endeavor at offering free web network in these places.

NDMC had joined forces with Tata Teleservices in 2014 to provide internet service in internal and external circles of Connaught Place, one of the noteworthy business and relaxation spots in the city. Likewise, NDMC had joined hands with Tata Docomo to give the office in Khan Market.

At present, the service can be used by 5,000 individuals with a normal speed of 512 Kbps. The initial 20 minutes inside a 24-hour time span are completely free after which scratch cards can be obtained in the market. Be that as it may, guests and traders have been complaining since a very long time that the administration is not working flawlessly.

“We had earlier launched the services with full preparation, but the plan did not work well. Initially, it worked fine but the connectivity has been slow lately,” a senior NDMC official saidI. “New Delhi Municipal Council Smart City Limited, a public limited company wholly owned by NDMC, has signed a joint venture with Millennium Telecom Limited (MTL)—a subsidiary of MTNL—to develop telecom access networks in our areas to provide FTTH (Fibre to the Home) to the residents,”
