4G, state-of-art, free Wi-Fi Hotspot has been started at Srinagar International Airport by BSNL such that digital divide amongst the people of Kashmir can be bridged. This service by BSNL is free for 15 minutes in the beginning of the service and was started by Asgar H Samoon, the Divisional Commissioner for Kashmir.
Mohammad Salim Beg, the general manager of BSNL, Kashmir had announced its launch in order to enable consumers to access internet service while on the go and to continue working even while having their pleasure trip. A one-time password is generated for the consumer’s smartphone or laptop which is accessed by a personalized service for login into their systems.
When the passenger logs into his/her system a registration link for the Wi-Fi service is prompted. After background verification is completed the consumer can browse free for the first quarter of an hour. The tourists to the valley will be greatly benefitted from the service and it will also be a boon for the localites.
Such facilities will be available in all other major public places like hospitals, schools bus-stops and many others like Press Enclave, Lal Chowk, Boulevard Road, SKIMS along the banks of Dal Lake by June end hence proving to be a major place of tourist attraction for the entire valley of Kashmir and neighbouring regions.
