As tech-savvy Indian tourists travel more, Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) connectivity has become a “must-have.” According to a global survey, 33% of Indian respondents want free Wi-Fi as a standard service across hotels. A majority of Indians are avid smartphone users, which makes it important to have Wi-Fi accessibility while travelling.
However back home, free public Wi-Fi Hotspots are not available in India unlike other countries.
This is a golden opportunity for Wi-Fi service providers. For instance, the Netherlands-based Nimbuzz – a cross platform aggregator for smartphones, tablets and personal computers – is eyeing India’s untapped public Wi-Fi domain. Moreover, some state governments are set to roll out more Wi-Fi hotspots to serve as a plus point for Wi-Fi service providers.
Can India become Wi-Fi enabled across public hotspots?
