Providing free Wi-Fi across the national capital was one of the key poll promises of ruling Aam Aadmi Party.
Over 500 locations across East Delhi will be made high-speed Wi-Fi zones by the end of this year allowing access to free Internet till a pre-determined limit daily, the Delhi government announced on Friday.
The government has also decided to lay down a common fibre-optic network across the city to make it possible for Delhiites to access the Web in "gigabit speed", Khetan said.
He suggested that 1,000 hotspot zones (Wi-Fi-enabled) in around 521 pre-identified locations in the trans-Yamuna region will cater to around 1,20,000 people at any given moment.
"The Delhi government has prepared the Wi-Fi project, which is set to be the largest such project in the world. These 571 pre-identified locations will have 1,000 hotspot zones. Each hotspot zone will have three access points and will cater to around 120 people at a time," Khetan said.
