Yaara Metro: When We Said Free WiFi...


We meant the customers are free to get their own WiFi!

There was much hype in the media that it would steal a march over Delhi Metro in providing free WiFi connectivity in the trains. 
But a month and a day after its launch, all that stands belied. Passengers, who were trying to connect to the internet on their smart phones and laptops, were a disappointed lot. 
... When BMRCL spokesperson, B S Chavan, was asked what exactly had happened to the much-hyped WiFi, he said: “People are using it in the trains. Many bring their laptops and connect to the Internet.” 
“Anyone can carry their Airtel or Docomo modem, plug it into their laptop and go online,” he added.
Ouch!
