A couple of years ago the same concept was shared by Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal. Since then once in a while, Arvind Kejriwal speaks about Public WiFi in Mumbai, but he failed in implementing. Whereas Mumbai Chief Minister made this possible by direct implementation without any publicity. Many social media critics are advising Arvind Kejriwal to learn from him! They also suggested to implement schemes instead of advertising schemes!
People in Mumbai as of now very happy with Public WiFi service. As of now, no complaints till now. Since eight days thousands of people using it without any complaints. Now the challenge is, Will Public WiFi sustains when more than a million people get connected to it?? Let’s wait and see
