15 GB data per month through hotspot network, says Kejriwal

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday announced that 100 Wi-Fi hotspots will be inaugurated on December 16, seven years since the Nirbhaya incident shook the country, in an attempt to spread a hotspot network throughout the city. The Chief Minister added that Delhiites will get 15 GB of data per month with a 1.5 GB cap per day through this network, adding that his party's government had fulfilled its promises to the electorate.

Kejriwal further added that the people of Delhi will be able to locate a Wi-Fi connection after every 500 metres in the city, with the hotspot connections supporting a radius of 100 metres. The Chief Minister maintained that the work order for the project had been passed and that the installation process has already started.

The total cost for the installation will amount to around Rs 100 crore and the scheme will operate as per a standard rent model with the Delhi government making monthly payments to the company for each hotspot. Kejriwal said the first 100 hotspots is just the start and that 500 will be installed every week, following this.

The Chief Minister further added that out of the total 11,000 hotspots to be installed across the city, 4,000 will be put up at the bus stands. The remaining 7,000 hotspots will be installed across the marketplaces and RWAs in Delhi with each constituency entailing 100 hotspots.

On an average, the maximum speed of the connection of the data will be 200 Mbps but the estimated speed will be between 100 and 150 Mbps with each hotspot capable of supporting 150-200 users at a time.
