New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) today launched ‘High speed Free Wi-Fi’ facilitiy at Metro stations on its Blue Line i.e, Line-3/4 (Dwarka Sec-21 to Noida City Centre/Vaishali). DMRC’s Managing Director, Dr. Mangu Singh formally launched the facility from the Rajiv Chowk Metro station.
The facility titled “Oui DMRC Free Wi-Fi” will be available on all 50 stations of the Blue Line. A person will be able to log in simply by searching for Wi-Fi options and log into “Oui DMRC Free Wi-Fi” after doing a onetime registration through their mobile phones. With this facility, passengers will be able to use all standard internet applications inside the station premises like email, Face book, Google, video chat as well as live streaming of cricket and football matches etc.
For providing this free wifi facility, DMRC has tied up with a consortium led by M/s Techno Sat Comm which is already providing the same facility on all six Metro stations of the Airport Express Line from October 2016 and also running India’s first Wi-Fi on train service on the Delhi-Howrah Rajdhani Express. The facility will use the globally acclaimed “T-Track 2.0 Wave 2 Solution”, also used on high speed trains worldwide.
DMRC aims at launching “Oui DMRC Free Wi-Fi” on all operational Metro stations and trains in a phased manner. It is expected that in another 6-9 months’ time, the same facility will be made available on all stations of Yellow Line (Line-2 i.e, HUDA City Centre to Samaypur Badli) and inside trains of Airport Line.
