Hyderabad, Aug 4 (PTI): In its efforts towards further

accelerating Digital Telangana, the State government on

Wednesday formally deployed over 3,000 public Wi-Fi hot spots

here, as part of the "Hy-Fi" project in collaboration with

ACT Fibernet.

The announcement regarding this was made in the presence

of the State Minister for IT and Industries K T Rama Rao and

Chief Executive Officer of Atria Convergence Technologies Ltd

(ACT) Bala Malladi and others, said a press release from the

internet services provider.

Each of the 3,000 Wi-Fi hot spots are powered byACT

SmartFiberTechnology that would ensure superfast and safe

internet experience, the release said.

The technology gives users a smooth, seamless

connectivity for video content, including calling, streaming,

and ultra-fast file transfers on ACTs gigabit-enabled

network at scale, it said.

Hyderabad has been rated as one of the best cities in

the world by several studies. The 3,000 active hot spots now

make Hyderabad a truly global smart city. I am happy that a

great number of people will now be able to enjoy free

internet and make good use of it. ACT Fibernet has been a

trusted industry partner for many years, and I thank them for

their support to expand the Hy-Fi project, Rama Rao said.

Bala Malladi said the free public Wi-fi would help bridge

the digital divide, be it for students, health workers or

even general public, and it is an honour to be part of the

project. PTI GDK
