On Thursday, Delhi Metro began its Airport Express Line with free Wi-Fi in train coaches. Mangu Singh, Managing Director of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), unveiled “Free High-Speed Wi-Fi” services for passengers aboard an Airport Express metro line. It is, according to officials, the first such facilities in any DMRC corridor. The Airport Express Line and Blue Line metro systems already have a Wi-Fi network.
“Passengers can use Wi-Fi free of charge at high speed by signing into the’ METROWIFI FREE’ network.” Just enter your telephone number when requested and get your OTP online throughout your journey, “DMRC tweeted.
“In India, the free Wi-Fi on Motor Trains has been introduced for the first time,” she said.
There are 6 stations in Delhi on the 22,7-km Airport Express route. It is linked by 21 metro stations from New Delhi to Dwarka District. This comes weeks following the launch of the 100 free Wi-Fi hotspots at several places in the metropolis by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Sources report to PTI that Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) plans to extend free WiFi to other corridors in train coaches.
To offer free high-speed Wi-Fi services on subway trains, DMRC linked to the Maxima Digital / Techno Sat Comm Consortium.
Farhad Rustamov, Maxima Digital, announced in a press release:’ We have set up 24 kilometers of Fiber, 44 simple stages and other active equipment to make sure internet access is not missed at any moment. Both radios on this path will have radios for link to specified networking and each bay will have wireless connectivity to passengers.’
The company is going to cover the entire through DMRC network with high-speed Wi-Fi coverage after this introduction. Rustamov said.
Free Wi-Fi was introduced in 2016, which already operates at all Airport Express stations. Next year, the DMRC also started operations at all Blue Line stations (Dwarka Sector 21 to Noida City Center / Vaishali).
As previously mentioned, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched several Wi-Fi hotspots in the city last month. A total of 11,000 Wi-Fi hotspots are scheduled for use in Delhi. Free Wi-Fi was one of Aam Aadmi’s ruling Party’s most spoken election commitments.
