MUMBAI: Commuters log into the Wi-Fi facility offered most during the afternoon non-peak hours on Metro I (Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar).The RInfra-promoted Mumbai Metro One Private Ltd (MMOPL) offers the facility at all its 12 stations and in the trains.
An MMOPL official said, "Of the 2,059 commuters who log in on an average per day, nearly 25% do so between noon and 3pm." Usage during the morning and evening peak hours is similar. The official said that the number of users between 9am-11am and 4pm-7pm was around 17%.
Mumbai Metro One is the first and
only metro in the country to offer Wi-Fi at all its stations and in its trains.
The official said that commuters have connectivity right from entry into any station, along the entire route, right up to the time of exit from the station. Delhi Metro offers connectivity at only four of the six stations on the Airport Express Line, while trains on the line do have Wi-Fi. He said the Bengaluru, Chennai and Jaipur metros do not offer Wi-Fi connectivity at stations or inside trains.
The Wi-Fi facility was commissioned at Mumbai Metro One stations in May 2014 and on trains in September 2014.
The bandwidth usage on the Mumbai Metro One network is 10-90mbps, peaking up to 150mbps.
The official said, "The service is affordable, with a tariff plan of only Rs100 for six months, which works out to less than Rs 17 per month for unlimited downloads, or about 50 paise per day of use."
Metro commuter Himanshu Nayak said, "I opted for it as my phone operator's signal keep dropping in between stations. It is cheaper and faster."
