Facebook, Airtel to deploy over 20,000 Wi-Fi Hotspots in India
Posted on: 08-05-2017 , 05:16:PM | DY365 Bureau

In order to provide affordable internet to Indians, Facebook and Bharti Airtel have teamed up to deploy over 20,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across the country.

Facebook in partnership with BSNL, already tested Express Wi-Fi across 125 rural Wi-Fi hotspots.

The development comes after Facebook's Free Basics programme was blocked by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on the grounds that it violated the principles of net neutrality.

Unlike Free Basics that provided access to selected websites for free, Express Wi-Fi works on a “paid” model and the access will not be restricted to any particular websites.

Users can log onto public Wi-Fi hotspots made available through partner telecom operators and buy daily, weekly or monthly data packs.
