New Delhi : The Delhi government of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is planning to make free WiFi functional in the national capital by February of 2016 and if everything goes right then Delhiites will be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi and accessing the much hyped free Internet sitting by this period.

Riding on a bandwidth of promises the AAP has formed government in last February. And since then, the demand to deliver free Wi-Fi has raised in decibel.

According the reports, Delhi 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 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.
The state government's Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of IT Adarsh Shastri said, "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."

While, 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.
