Bengaluru, First Indian City to get Free Public Wi-Fi hotspots

Bengaluru (Bangalore) is said to be technology capital of India will be the first Indian city to get free public wifi hotspots, unlike to wi-fi hotspots available in Bangalore International Airport or some private hotels or cafes, it's now MG Road (Mahatma Gandhi Road) and Brigade road as one of happening & common public destination in Bangalore to get absolutely free wifi access for anyone in this area.

This is six month pilot service implemented by D-Vois Broadband, a Bangalore based ISP, for ongoing progress of Information & Communication Technology (ICT) panel appointed by state government, which will further expand the wi-fi hot-spots after evaluating this pilot service.

The ICT panel is headed by former Infosys head - Mohandas Pai. After the MG road & Brigade road free wi-fi access, the panel has a plan to talk to other private ISPs like D-Vois to figure our revenue-sharing model.

Noticeably, Bangalore has BSNL, a govt. of India enterprise for telecommunication & Internet and broadband, in spite of that the panel has chosen private ISPs, with no reasons why?

On other hand the debate has also initiated that Bangalore need more infrastructure such as public transport, clog free road and better traffic control than free public wifi, Bangalore is known to be traffic clogged narrow roads.
