The symbol of love Taj Mahal will now be Hi-tack from this June 16. Visitors at the Taj Mahal will enjoy free Wi-Fi internet facility across the sprawling campus for 30 minutes. Any browsing or usage like downloading, surfing after this period would invite charges at Rs.30 an hour, a Bharatiya Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) official said.
Chief General Manager of BSNL (UP-West) Pradeep Kumar said, “The trials have been completed and the service will be launched by union Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad in Agra on June 16.”
While bandwidth is being provided by BSNL, the system integrator - Quadgen, a Bengaluru based company - is providing the wireless support. Due to security and other reasons, the ASI has only permitted the Wi-Fi availability in a radius of 30 metres from the main gate of the Taj Mahal, officials further said.
