Wi-Fi is a technology of Wireless Local area networks (WLAN) based on IEEE 802.11 specifications which is gaining lot of popularity. Wi-Fi Access Points cover around 100 meters of area and are generally termed as Hot Spots. Wi-Fi Access Points 802.11 b/g operating in 2.4 GHz unlicensed band have been permitted for indoor and outdoor usage.
MTNL had launched a Citywide Wi-Fi Public Access Service with the brand name, Wi-Fine. MTNL Wi-Fine will enable users with wifi enabled laptops and PDAs to access the internet from a number of Hot Spots across Delhi. The service has a footprint enabling a single Wi-Fi account to be used across all the hot-spots, thereby ensuring account portability, which is a major value-addition. The service combines the twin benefits of high affordability, comparable to Dial-up Internet and high browsing and download speeds, ensuring a true broadband experience at minimal cost, making it a big value-for-money proposition.
