29th Nov 2016

Yesterday, we launched the first designer Wi Fi Hot Spot in New Town Kolkata. This is at the first rotary traffic island, near the Bus Stand. The design is made by a team from IIT Kharagpur led by Prof Dr D Pandit. The fabrication of the white metal structure is done by an engineering team led by Suman Neogy, GM, Hidco. The bandwidth / router is provided by NTTIDCO, a joint venture company of Hidco.
The idea is to universalise access to internet, create public spaces that encourages real-life socializing (not only on facebook !: see the number of people already making use of it in the lower picture). We will analyse the responses received from the pilot ptoject and then spread out to 60 odd locations in New Town already identified by the IIT Team
