Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today inaugurated BSNL's free Wi-fi service in Varanasi and promised a project worth over Rs 100 crore to boost Internet connectivity in the district.

Besides, the Minister announced setting up the state's first IT park with support from the central government.

"Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Communications and IT, inaugurated Wi-fi hotspot zone created by BSNL at Dashashwamedh Ghat & sh#tala Ghats of Varanasi today," BSNL said in a statement.

The company would be providing free Wi-fi services, for 30 minutes per 24 hours, that visitors can utilise in multiple sessions.

After the free usage limit of 30 minutes is exhausted, a customer can continue using the service on a paid basis, for which subscription plans are available in the denomination of Rs 20, Rs 30, Rs 50 and Rs 70 for validity of 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 120 minutes and one day, respectively.

BSNL has also planned to expand the coverage of Wi-fi facility to other Ghats like Rajendra Prasad Ghat, Man Mandir Ghat, Tript Bhairvi Ghat, Mir Ghat, Lalita Ghat and Manikarnika Ghat by the end of this month.

Prasad said BSNL will expand its mobile network in Varanasi further with a total estimated cost of Rs 60 crore, the statement said.
