BSNL to offer free WiFi services at more airports

PUBLIC sector telecom company BSNL will soon provide free WiFi services at more airports managed by Airports Authority of India (AAI). This was disclosed by BSNL chairman and managing director Anupam Shrivastava.
Currently, BSNL offers Wi-Fi services at 4-5 airports including Bhopal and Coimbatore.
According to media reports quoting Shrivastava, the BSNL first...
approached AAI chairman three months ago for providing WiFi services to more airports, and the AAI, in turn, agreed to allow BSNL to go ahead with its services and circulated information to all airports managed by them.
AAI manages 121 airports across the country including 11 international airports.
The BSNL will weigh in commercial feasibility while taking a call on expansion of its services to more number of airports.
The AAI has tied up with Tata Teleservices for Wi-Fi services at some airports. BSNL has set a target of setting up 2,500 Wi-Fi centers across the country by the end of FY2015-16. This excludes 100 Wi-Fi that it is setting up with Facebook and for Members of Parliament in their constituencies.
