CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): The passengers using Chennai Metro are in, for a treat as Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) has partnered with SugarBox Networks to provide trains with a technology which enables users to access apps. SugarBox Zones have been set up in many Metro trains over the city where the passengers can sign in to SugarBox and enjoy their favourite movies or listen to music at a button click.
The SugarBox is a local Wi-Fi network that eliminates the users’ dependence on mobile data and gives them continuous access of apps. Currently, there are no data charges or usage limits over apps on SugarBox. Users could access content on the SugarBox app on both iOS and Android devices. As per a press release, Rohit Paranjpe SugarBox Networks CEO stated, “It is a matter of great honour to have been taken by Chennai Metro.
We would install SugarBox servers in all Chennai Metro Rails. Users would be able to run movies and TV shows through their commute. In the long run, the SugarBox platform would also support e-commerce, gaming, music streaming, last-mile transport booking, food ordering and many other relevant value-added services. This enables users to continue using their desired apps in places without internet connectivity as well as without any data cost.”
