Mumbai — the financial capital of the country will pretty soon go live with 1200 Wi-Fi Hotspots, according to the Hindustan Times.

The project envisages providing wireless internet access across the city through a network of 6,000 MTNL hotspots at 1,200 locations across the city. It will offer speeds of up to 20Mbps (megabits per second), equivalent to 2.5MB/s (megabytes per second).

Under the scheme, the first 1GB of data or the first 30 minutes of use – whichever comes first – will be free. After that, you will be charged at competitive rates.

The municipal elections are set for next month, so I’m hoping to see this go live some time next week.

I really hope this see-saw of news ends soon.
