Bharti Airtel to Roll-out Hotspots in New Year
Bharti Airtel, the leading telecom operator by revenues and customers, is set to enter the Wi-Fi space next week by setting up hotspots across the country.
Initially, this facility will be made available to only existing Airtel broadband customers, company sources said.
A hotspot is any place that offers wireless internet access to a person carrying a notebook (laptop) or a wi-fi enabled smartphone. At present, there are an estimated 1,500 hotspots in the country with Tata Communications being the largest player in this space.
The hotspots will be strategically located at premium hotels, hospitals, chains of restaurants, coffee shops and corporate buildings which are the hub of corporate, community and social activities.
Bharti Airtel plans to set up 1,000 hotspots nationally by end of 2010.
