As a part of the Uttarakhand government’s initiative to convert Mussoorie into a ‘Smart City’, the hill station has now become one of the first locations in North India to be equipped with free Wi-Fi services.
The service under government’s Digital India initiative would cover the area of four kilometers ranging from Mall Road to Jhullaghar. The government of Uttarakhand along with Reliance Jio has started this project that will soon be providing free Wi-Fi access in not just Mussoorie but in Ranikhet, Mallitaal, Tallitaal and Nanital. In the first few months, the services are for free of cost but later users will be charged at nominal rates after free Wi-Fi usage for 15-20 minutes. A speed of 50 Mbps to 100 Mbps is promised to the users at any given point.
