Starting from next month, Bangalore is expected to have free wireless internet services at 2 major commercial destinations, M.G.Road and the Brigade road. Bangalore will be the first city in India to have free Wi-Fi service available at public spots. Last year, decision was made to provide free wireless broadband.

As of now, they want to test how well this plan would be piloted and the evaluation would be done based network availability. This would go for 6 months after which plans for further expansion would be planned accordingly. This piloting would be free of charge and once the piloting is successful, talks would be done with private ISP's and figure out a revenue-generating model.
