The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and telecom operator Tata Docomo have signed a partnership to offer free WiFi services. Free WiFi will be provided around the area of PJ Tower in Mumbai to public without charge for four hours in a day to start with.

In November 2014, Tata Docomo tied up with the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to launch public Wi-Fi service in the Connaught Place area in Delhi. Tata Docomo says that it plans to set up WiFi hotspots in major cities across the country over the next two years in anticipating exponential growth of internet usage on smart devices in India.

Similarly, in March 2014, Tata Teleservices had revealed plans of setting up 4,000 Wi-Fi hotspots in nine cities across India over the next two years. The company started setting up Wi-Fi hotspots at airports, restaurants, cafes and other businesses last year, including Wi-Fi hotspots in Delhi and Hyderabad airports and Starbucks outlets across India.

Other developments in public WiFi:

– Earlier this month, State run telco and internet provider BSNL said it is working on setting up 40,000 WiFi hotspots across the country to make up for the lack of its own 4G services.

– Sistema Shyam, which operates under the MTS brand in India, tied up with Indian Railways in April last year, to offer WiFi services at railway stations across India.
