New Delhi: Telecom operator Reliance Jio will provide free WiFi services at six cricket stadiums during the upcoming T20 World Cup matches followed by the IPL (Indian Premier League).
Jio Net, by Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, will provide high-speed internet connectivity at six main stadiums across the country. Wi-Fi will be available in Wankhede Stadium (Mumbai), Eden Garden (Kolkata), IS Bindra Stadium (Mohali), HPCA stadium (Dharamshala), Chinnaswamy Stadium (Bengaluru) and Feroz Shah Kotla (Delhi).
At Feroz Shah Kotla, Reliance Jio has installed 650 access points to support 40,000 connected devices during T20 matches, starting March 23.
To make this possible, Jionet has harnessed its superior network capacity along with specially designed state-of-the-art Wi-Fi access points (APs) that will cover the entire stadium with a seating capacity of minimum 20,000.
"We supported connectivity for about 30,000 people in Mumbai. At any given point, 20,000 people were continuously connected on Jio Net. It was delivering speed of 15-35 megabit per second," the spokesperson said.
Jio Net was made operational at Wankhede Stadium during India and South Africa One-Day series in April 2015, where the company witnessed a record data usage.
