If all goes well, you might be accessing the much hyped free Internet sitting in Delhi by February next year. Riding on a bandwidth of promises the Aam Admi Party (AAP) has formed government in last February. And since then, the demand to deliver free Wi-Fi has raised in decibel.

As per a Press Trust of India (PTI) news report, government will release Expression of Interest (EOI) for the project soon and followed by Request for Proposal (RfP) in June . The participatory company will get to start work from July.

Senior officials have told the news agency that website browsing, social media websites (Facebook/Twitter), email and WhatsApp and other basic services will remain free. But users would need to pay for watching videos, video chat and downloading content.

“We will work on ensuring a minimum speed of 512Kbps to each user to make it a better experience. We will be very strict on user experience and uninterrupted service,” the Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of IT, Adarsh Shastri told the PTI.

The government is considering fixing the data usage to 50MB per day but a call is yet to be taken in that regard.

“We will not fix a time but will restrict bandwidth. Internet will be charged on the basis of data usage per day. Once the data limit is exhausted, users can avail the service by paying for extra usage. Every day the system will be reset,” Shastri said.

“At present, Shanghai has the largest model which caters to 4.5 lakh people. But with 50 lakh users, we have large avenues for monetisation. We can also categorise the content being accessed, etc., which provides a big scope for targeted advertising,” said Shastri.

The government plans to set-up 50,000-80,000 hotspots across Delhi as part of the free Wi-Fi endeavour.
