What we’ll discuss at #NAMAwifi

To get a sense of the depth of the discussions at #NAMA events, do check our #NAMAvoip videos.

With the advent of 4G, there still remains an opportunity in WiFi roll-outs: many cities have areas where public WiFi has been deployed; many restaurants in major cities have WiFi deployed. We plan to discuss the opportunities and challenges with WiFi roll-outs: What kind of consumer behaviour has been noticed on public WiFi networks? What business models will help create a viable public WiFi system in India? What impact does impact of the spectrum allocation have on WiFi? What are the challenges related to roll-out and maintenance, and whether an open WiFi environment is feasible?
