Vodafone India has introduced the country’s first ever Wi-Fi enabled bus shelter which will be available for free use for all, regardless of which telco company’s service they use. The Wi-Fi enable bus shelter has been opened up in Noida’s Sector 18 – so that nobody is left internet-void even while waiting for buses.
In the era of internet, people find it difficult to imagine life without internet these days and we just don’t want to get off the world web. To make sure that nobody misses out their precious internet time, Vodafone India has announced that they have turned one of the bus shelters in Noida into a free Wi-Fi hotspot, which will allow users of any telco to access complimentary internet for 20 minutes every day – for free. With ‘Digital India’ mission in mind, Vodafone has already set up wi-fi enabled bus shelter at Huda City Centre and sector 14, Gurugram – making the Noida bus shelter as third of its kind.
The shelter will provide 20 minutes/day of free Wifi to users waiting there. A Vodafone number is not a necessity to avail the service – it is really open for everyone, no prejudices. But yes, it will allow you to use the service just for 20 minutes each day – which is fair enough for the waiting time. But yes, Vodafone users get special treatment because why not. So Vodafone postpaid users would be able to access 10 GB free WiFi data at these locations, while prepaid users will get 1GB WiFi data on 3G/4G data packs.
With this initiative, Vodafone is contributing to the Digital India campaign being promoted by the Government and Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). Apart from three Wi-Fi enabled bus shelters, Vodafone India has established WiFi hotspot networks across 116 different locations including Dilli Haat, Khan Market, Fortis Hospital (Gurugram) and all Vodafone stores across Delhi-NCR. These high-speed hotspots are for Vodafone RED Postpaid users and Vodafone Prepaid users.
