An online shopping portal PayTM started to offer free WiFi service in Noida city to its users in order to access their online PayTM account with no internet cost. This free WiFi initiative has been started merely in Sector-18 metro station and it will be stretched across all the NCR metro stations soon. This newbie WiFi program is launched to access not just the PayTM account but also for other web and apps too.
Although Ola & Uber has also given a space to this launching last year and even Facebook, a social networking platform has initiated free internet use for limited websites in some states of India but in e-commerce history, first time PayTM has taken this step to attract more customers, traders and users so that people can get ease access while transacting whether for e-shopping, instant recharge or any transaction that takes place via PayTM wallet. This is such an amazing deal to overcome internet network interruptions while doing some crucial online transaction.
The company founder- Vijay Shekhar Sharma said
“We are building avenues for our merchants and consumers who do not have access to the internet at all the times to stay connected with PayTM. Initially, we are looking at metros because they are key locations for our consumers and our merchants, especially the auto-rickshaw walas”.
Furthermore, Mr. Sharma shared some screenshots on Facebook and twitter that shows the device is connected to a PayTM Wi-Fi with a WiFi information-“PayTM wifi is live at Noida Sec 18 – under the metro station.”
Mr. Sharma added:
“This is in its beta version, so we are still learning. After a point, we can expect our consumers to buy these services”
Free internet or WiFi service is much popular in the current youth and society hence, it can bring a storm among the people. Today’s people can be seen using free wifi outside any business building in case they are providing the same and even more business organizations are providing free wifi for particular locations. For instance, free wifi or hotspot can also be seen in some Delhi places like canaught place, and khan market and in some Gurgaon location. In result, PayTM users will get excited enough with this free wifi launching and will forget the inconvenience of network interruptions what they suffer while they are on the way.
