After Google and BSNL, it is turn for Reliance Jio to provide free WiFi to consumers. Jionet, a service from Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (RJIL), is going to provide free WiFI connectivity for air travellers at the Kazi Nazrul Islam Airport at Andal in Durgapur.
“Jionet services would assist passengers at Andal airport to sample the digital ecosystem that Jio has built, comprising specially designed apps and rich content running on Jio’s fibre based high speed data networks,” a RJIL spokesperson said at the launch of the service.
Travellers can use the free service after a login process verified via SMS and can surf the internet for 24 hours. However, the service will automatically disconnect after 30 minutes of inactivity.
Currently, the Andal airport serves the towns of Burdwan, Bankura, Bishnupur, Purulia, Suri, Bolpur/Shantiniketan and Rampurhat in South Bengal and Dhanbad and Bokaro in Jharkhand.
