21 Apr 2016

Bangladeshi cellco Robi Axiata has launched a project to deploy Wi-Fi hotspots across the country. Over the next six months the Malaysian-backed operator will provide Wi-Fi services in 500 restaurants, cafes and retail outlets; 100 educational institutions; ten transport hubs (airports/railway stations) and over 350 buses, taxis and trains, reports Telecompaper. Robi customers with packages including at least 1GB of mobile data will be eligible for free Wi-Fi access at all hotspots, whilst on buses, taxis and trains Wi-Fi access will be available to all users with Wi-Fi-enabled devices. Robi also plans to introduce various data bundles with Wi-Fi quotas. The company has formed strategic partnerships with AccessTel, Qubee and Aamra to deploy and maintain the Wi-Fi hotspots. For the project rollout on buses and taxis, Robi has partnered with Coalesce.
