Metro Commuters travelling on Blue line will no more have to worry about access to internet as they can now avail high-speed Wi-Fi, free of cost. Delhi Metro on Friday launched free high-speed WiFi service on all of all 50 stations of Blue line. Passengers can now use the service between Dwarka Sector 21 and Vaishali/Noida City Centre stations by searching for WiFi options and selecting ‘Oui DMRC Free Wifi’ for one-time registration through their mobile phones. With download speed set at 50 Mbps, there is no time limit for commuters, a DMRC official said.
Officials said passengers would be able to use all standard internet applications such as email, Facebook, Google, video chat as well as live streaming of cricket and football matches, etc.
Plans are also afoot to launch similar services on all Metro stations and trains in a phased manner. It is hopeful of starting the service on the Yellow Line connecting HUDA City Centre to Samaypur Badli, as well as within metro trains in Airport line in six to nine months. WiFi service was started at all six stations of the Airport Line in October last year.
“The facility will use the globally acclaimed T-Track 2.0 Wave 2 Solution, also used on high-speed trains worldwide,” the DMRC said.
