Joining the government’s ‘Digital India‘ campaign, Joister Infomedia has launched free Wi-Fi facility with a speed of up to 2 mbps in four cities of Maharashtra.


The broadband and gaming service provider has launched the service at 436 locations catering free Internet to 1.18 lakh registered users across Mumbai, Pune, Thane and Navi Mumbai, its Chairman and Managing Director Nikunj Kampani said. The company is planning to expand its service in 30 more cities, including Solapur, Satara, Sangli, Chiplun, Nashik and Nagpur in next six months, he said.

“It’s all about empowering digital platform. No contracts, no hidden fees, and no fine print. We keep everything as simple and transparent as possible,” Kampani told PTI.

The users can register their numbers with the service and enjoy Internet. Joister has also launched a mobile app that helps users to locate the nearest Joispot Wi-Fi location. The service has been made available in public places like schools, colleges, malls, cafeterias, restaurants, market areas etc, so that those who cannot afford 3G or 4G Internet data plans can enjoy uninterrupted and unlimited facility, he said explaining the purpose for the initiative.

Explaining the objective of such a charitable move, Kampani said with free Wi-Fi service they intend to connect more and more people on the Internet, he said.

“It is very important to eliminate the digital divide in the country, as total population of India is 126 crore out of which only 36 crore people are able to take advantage of Internet, but balance 90 crore people have never used Internet,” he said.

When asked how long will his company invest in such sort of charity, Kampani said, “Yes, for this we have launched a portal onerupeeworks.com that appeals people to donate one rupee each day, which we are sure to click.”

“Through this simple act of contributing one rupee each day, we can bring free wi-fi internet to most remote communities and strengthen our nations’ social and economic development,” he added.
