ACT Fibernet will be powering 3000+ public Wi-Fi hotspots in Hyderabad as part of the Hy-Fi project in Telangana.
Wi-Fi hotspots are powered by ACT SmartFiber Technology that will ensure superfast and safe internet experience. A study by InMobi in April 2021 indicates that ACT Fibernet is the largest ISP and the fastest service provider in Hyderabad, and the best broadband for streaming.
Users will have to login through “ACT Free Hy-Fi” portal with their phone number and use free internet for 45 mins at 25 Mbps speed and 1 GB data limit without any cost and can also top up further as and when needed.
Existing customers of ACT, when they login with their ACT credentials, will get their current home broadband speeds. For example, if the customer has a 100 Mbps plan at home, he will get 100 Mbps speeds when he logs into wi-fi hotspot. These hotspots are located across the city in malls, hospitals, public parks, metro stations, public libraries, metro stations, educations institutions etc. for easy access.
“Hyderabad now has the largest active public free wi-fi network which can be accessed in most of the public locations. Through Hy-Fi, all of Hyderabad can connect to the internet free of cost and benefit from the opportunities that the digital world provides,” Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary for IT, Industries and Commerce, Govt. of Telangana, said.
Bala Malladi, CEO Atria Convergence Technologies (ACT), said: “The free public Wi-fi will help bridge the digital divide, be it for students, health workers or even general public.”
