WiFi services will be installed at 20 more locations in the Jammu city under the Union government’s Smart City Mission for the benefit of students and the business community, officials said on Wednesday.
Jammu Smart City Limited (JSCL) has signed an agreement with service provider LMES to install WiFi hotspots at 20 locations. The agreement was signed and exchanged between the Chief Executive officer of JSCL Avny Lavasa and the director of LMES.
“To attract tourist footfall and benefit students as well as the business community, the JSCL has decided to expand its free WiFi service to 20 more locations under the smart city mission,” Lavasa said.
The WiFi hotspots will be installed at Government Medical College Jammu, Railway Station Jammu, Canal Road Jammu, Jammu University, Channi Himmat, Trikuta Nagar, Shastri Nagar and others.
In the first phase, WiFi hotspots were installed at 16 locations, which received massive responses. Over 4,500 people connect to the network from KC Plaza to Raghunath Mandir to Mubarak Mandi to Kachi Chawni to Indra Chowk monthly, Lavasa said.
She said Internet connectivity is an important component of the smart city.
