New Delhi: In a bid to make Hyderabad the first fully Wi-Fi enabled metro city in the country, Telangana Government is holding talks with various telecom service providers to offer the services.
The state's Information Technology Minister K T Rama Rao told reporters here that steps are being taken to offer Wi-Fi services across greater Hyderabad metropolitan area.
"We are taking a leaf out of cities like Mountain View and Houston for offering Wi-Fi services. We are speaking to service providers," he said, adding that they are also looking at Ahmedabad and Bangalore where Wi-Fi services are available on a limited basis.
Asked whether any time line has been set for it, Rao said they are working to have it at the earliest but no deadline has been fixed as yet. Hyderabad city, which has a population 12 million, is one of the major IT hubs in the country. "We want to offer Wi-Fi services to enable more citizen services," he said.
