Delhi metro travellers, all commuters of the metro rail service can now be able to access free high-speed WiFi at all its Yellow Line stations
In a piece of good news for Delhi metro travellers, all commuters of the metro rail service can now be able to access free high-speed WiFi at all its Yellow Line stations.
On Sunday, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said that it has introduced free high-speed Wi-Fi service for commuters at all 37 stations on its Yellow Line, that connects HUDA City Centre to Samaypur Badli. The DMRC in association with a technology consortium is working on introducing this facility inside metro trains (besides the Airport Express Line) also in a year's time, officials said.
In its efforts to continuously enhance travel experience for its commuters, the Delhi Metro has successfully introduced the facility of free high-speed WiFi service at all metro stations of the Yellow Line or Line-2, from Samaypur Badli to HUDA City Centre), the officials said, adding that work is on to expand the facility to stations of other corridors of the network. This high-speed service on the Yellow Line will prove to be a special boon to students travelling to and from North Delhi Campus of Delhi University, the DMRC said.
This service, coinciding with the festival season, has been launched on this line which consists of 37 metro stations, and runs mostly underground through one of the most congested parts of the city, covering outer Delhi, north Delhi through central Delhi and south Delhi and finally Gurgaon, the officials said.
More than 330 access points have been installed at these 37 stations to provide uninterpreted internet access to the commuters, the DMRC said. Apart from providing free WiFi at metro stations across its network, the DMRC in association with Techno Sat Comm is striving to introduce this facility inside metro trains also in a year's time from here on, the statement said.
Upgrading and installing the desired access points is quite a challenging task in already operational trains, the officials said. To access the high-speed internet facility at Yellow Line stations, a passenger needs to log on to the "OUI DMRC FREE WIFI" network.
After that, he or she would need to enter the phone number and email id and an OTP (one-time-password) would be sent to the mobile number via SMS. Once the login is successful, the commuter can enjoy the free Wi-Fi service. Passengers will be able to enjoy all standard internet applications like email, Facebook, YouTube, Google search, WhatsApp, video and audio calls, and more after logging into the network.
