The Aam Aadmi Party government has decided to provide free Wi-Fi internet on the basis of limited data usage, instead of setting a time limit. Among the prominent pre-poll promises made by AAP, the plan will be implemented by February of next year.

According to a senior official, the government will release an expression of interest by a request for proposal in June with the work to be awarded by July. Around 150 companies from around the world have expressed interest, the official said.

Senior officials also said website browsing, social media sites (Facebook /Twitter), email and Whatsapp and other basic services will remain free while a user will have to pay for watching videos, video chat and downloading content. “We will work on ensuring a minimum speed of 512 KB p/s to each user to make it a better experience. We will be very strict on user experience and uninterrupted service,” said the Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of IT, Adarsh Shastri.
