Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Rail Tel Corporation to install free Wi-Fi service at Red Fort, while they have done a tie-up with MTNL for providing internet at Qutub Minar and Humayun's tomb.
According to officials the services can be availed within a 200-metre radius of the monument. However, Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has asked the service provider not to carry out any construction or installation within the protected monument.
Service provider is in process of deciding number and location of hotspots to be installed at each site. The ASI has also identified others spots in the country where this free Wi-Fi plan will be implemented.
In a MoU with BSNL they have decided to install Wi-Fi services at Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri, Sarnath and Sun temple Konark. The service was yesterday inaugurated at Taj Mahal.
