Amazon Sets Up Free WiFi Hotspots With Unlimited Internet in Pune, Hyderabad & Chennai
In a unique initiative to increase its popularity and public outreach, the e-commerce giant Amazon has planned to offer free WiFi internet with unlimited usage across select bus stops in Hyderabad, Pune, and Chennai.
With this move, the company hopes to lure new customers to its shopping platforms while getting those people online who do not have data packs on their smartphones. This way, the company would not only gain more popularity in these cities but would also help the government in its Digital India initiative.
In this age of high-speed internet and digital advertising every company related to the digital goods wants to get more people online. While there have been many initiatives in the past to grant free internet access to the people of India, many like Airtel Zero platform and Internet.org initiatives have failed due to fact that they are violating net neutrality.
Keeping that in mind, and given the fact that many new companies are planning to offer free internet access to the users, people using Amazon WiFi hotspots would be able to access every website that is not banned in the country.
Surprisingly, Amazon is not blocking Flipkart and Snapdeal on its WiFi hotspots! Basically, you will get high-speed unlimited internet access for doing any activity on the web.
Seeing that Amazon would be providing unrestrained access to all websites on the web, we really think that this free internet initiative of Amazon would not get caught up in any legal trouble.
“We have been relentlessly innovating to deliver a great customer experience in India. In line with this, we have innovated on the out of home front to launch 24×7 free Wi-Fi hotspots in high footfall locations across Hyderabad so that local residents can enjoy seamless online shopping,” said Manish Kalra, Director of integrated marketing, Amazon India.
Amazon representatives will also be present at these free WiFi hotspot locations to help first time internet users login, register, and shop on its marketplace.
These free WiFi zones will be available to all users at select bus stops in Pune, Hyderabad, and Chennai.
- People in Pune would be able to enjoy free WiFi internet at 4 bus shelters at East Street Road, M.G. Road, Bund Garden Road, and J.M. Road.
