Free Wi-Fi for Taj Group hotel guests from November 15

Taj Group

Tata group-owned The Taj Group is introducing complimentary Wi-Fi service for its residential guests across its 125 properties globally from this Saturday (November 15).

The company mentions that guests at any Taj Group hotel, including The Taj, Vivanta by Taj, Gateway Hotels and Ginger will be to access free Wi-Fi services on up to three devices after they check-in to the hotel. Note that the hotel previously offered complimentary Wi-Fi service to guests staying in its premium rooms.

What’s not clear though is what speeds a consumer could expect through this service and whether there’s a limit on the session length or data caps for consumers using this service.

The company notes that users who require higher bandwidth can upgrade for a premium plan and also connect additional devices at “specially designed tariffs.”, however there is currently no specific information on how much the company will charge for the premium plan and the ability to connect additional devices. We’ve written to Taj Hotels for more details on this and will update once we get a response.

We feel this is quite a welcome move, considering that Wi-Fi services at five-star hotels are typically super expensive in our experience. We hope that more hotels follow suit to launch similar offerings to their guests.

Tata Teleservice’s Wi-Fi Rollout: Interestingly, it’s also worth noting that Tata’s another group company Tata Teleservices had stated plans of setting up 4,000 Wi-Fi hotspots in nine cities across India over the next two years in March this year.

The company had started up Wi-Fi hotspots at airports, restaurants, cafes and other businesses in June last year and had claimed to have 540 hotspots as of March this year. This includes Wi-Fi hotspots in Delhi and Hyderabad airports and in Starbucks across India (a 50/50 joint venture between Starbucks Coffee Company and Tata Global Beverages) among others.
