Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday launched public Wi-Fi hotspots to provide wireless Internet connectivity to users in Gurgaon.

People visiting MG Road, Sadar Bazaar, Sector 29 market, and Sarhaul Village can enjoy free Wi-Fi sessions on their devices. Users will be able to enjoy a free daily quota limit of 30 minutes per day per device, Airtel said in a statement.

Airtel had won the mandate for the Wi-Fi launch from Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon last year.

The free Wi-Fi service is open to all users with compatible devices. When in proximity to the Wi-Fi, the user has to just enable Wi-Fi in device settings and search for ‘MSG powered by Airtel’, Airtel said.

One can continue to use the Wi-Fi services post 30 minutes also, however they will be charged a nominal amount, Airtel said.

In its emailed statement, Airtel added, “While Airtel users will be charged on their data plan/packs, non-Airtel users will be able to buy online vouchers with affordable deals. Airtel customers can connect to the Wi-Fi using the Airtel Hangout app also.”

Dhruv Bhagat, CEO – Delhi/NCR, Bharti Airtel was also present at the event on Sunday and said, “We are very happy to partner with the Gurgaon administration and enable citizens in the Millennium City to experience world-class internet services on the go.”
