The pilot project for making Noida into a WiFi zone has been running successfully. Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and the Noida authority are the agencies behind the whole project. By the December end, WiFi would be made effective on expressway. The beneficiary will be mainly the corporate sector executives, golfers and wireless-savvy commuters who stay connected with Internet and attend video conferences. The plan is to bring the whole of Noida including the famous Noida Golf Course into the net of WiFi that includes the networking in the 34-kilometre road stretch from South Delhi to Greater Noida. Noida will become the first Indian City, which would be able to provide WiFi facility on moving vehicles as stated by sources from BSNL. 50 antennas have been put up all along the expressway in order to enable the gadgets get connected without any congestion in network, even in case of any trouble the monitor chip could be used for effective operation. If this project runs successfully, it is going to be extended up to 160-kilometre in Taj expressway till Agra.
