Free wifi with a speed of upto 50 mbps was today rolled out across the six stations on Metro's premium Airport Express line.

Launching the facility at Shivaji Stadium station here, Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) chief Mangu Singh said the stations on Blue Line, stretching between Noida/Vaishali and Dwarka, will be made wifi enabled next.



Techno Sat Comm, which was awarded a 10-year contract by DMRC in this regard, plans to extend the facility across corridors of the metro network by the second half of this year.

The commuters will be able to avail free wifi services by logging onto 'Oui DMRC Free Wifi' and access internet applications like email, Facebook, Google, video chat as well as live streaming of cricket and football matches etc inside the station premises, DMRC said in a statement.

Earlier this year, limited wifi facility was launched on Yellow Line's Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate, Central Secretariat and Hauz Khas stations in association with Rail Tel Corporation.

The daily ridership on the 22.7 kilometre-long Airport Express corridor (Orange line) breached the 50,000-mark for the first time this August.

As per the current fare structure, the minimum single journey fare on the corridor that connects New Railway station with IGI Terminal 3, is Rs 10 and the maximum Rs 60.
