This follows similar decisions made in Bangalore and Pune however in delhi government is looking at latest WiMax which ensures High speed internet on the move. Moves like this will help the propagation of internet to the masses and thus increase internet market however it remains to be seen what kind of business model is adopted by the private players who hop onto this bandwagon
The WiFi zones are to be established through private-public partnership (PPP) model. The private firm will have to undertake implementation, integration and commissioning of Wifi Zones or Wi-fi Hotspots. The company will have to create kiosks at various places for citizen to access Internet, and will also have maintain and offer technical support for the next three years.

The government will ensure that the Local Point of Presence for providing assistance to tourists and other end users, supports the network; to configure their devices should the same be required.“In future these points of presence may evolve Tourist help centers and provide additional value added services.
