Bharti Airtel has launched its WiFi app â€“ Airtel Hangout. Airtel customers can download the Hangout app for free from Android or iOS store.
On the installation of the app, a customer will have to validate his/her phone number to start the session on Airtel Hangout. Once validated, every time the customer is near an Airtel WiFi zone, he will automatically connect to the WiFi network if he has given his consent to auto connect else he will get notified about the WiFi network and he can connect to the network manually. Customers can make these necessary settings under the app preference settings. Airtel customers will though need to have an activated Airtel 3G/4G pack/plan since the WiFi data consumption will be charged from this pack/plan.
Announcing the launch, Ajai Puri, director â€“ market operations, Bharti Airtel said, “With the Airtel Hangout app, we aim to enable more and more users to experience superior and superfast mobile internet speeds by seamlessly latching on to our WiFi zone and enjoy many more internet capabilities on their mobile device on the move.â€
Starting tomorrow (October 9), visitors at DLF Cyber Hub will be able to connect to have Airtel’s WiFi zone which is an open platform for users across mobile operators having WiFi compatible devices and will allow users a free quota limit of 25 MB per day per device. Users have to just switch on WiFi on their device settings and connect to the WiFi named “AirtelWiFiZoneâ€.
Post exhaustion of the 25 MB quota, the WiFi will be available exclusively to Airtel customers via the Airtel Hangout app. Airtel’s other WiFi zone locations in Delhi/NCR include Khalsa College, Gangaram Hospital, DLF Star Mall, DLF Grand Mall, Supreme Court, Delhi High Court and Khan Market.
