Rohit Gothi, Hub CEO, Bharti Airtel, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan said, “With the internet emerging as an inherent part of the lives we lead today, we at Airtel are always looking for new ways of bringing our customers closer to the always-connected online experience that they enjoy. Through Huawei’s data card services available in EasyCabs across the city, we are delighted to offer our customers in Delhi NCR a seamless and high-speed data experience to stay connected to the exciting world of internet – even when on the road!”
Huawei E355 was launched in India last year as a product that can work as a regular USB modem capable of accepting GSM SIM, or in a mode that can create a Wi-Fi network for your mobile devices while it is connected to your PC. Connect it to a USB power source and it can also function as a standalone device, creating a Wi-Fi network that you can use.
Huawei has placed its device, Wi-Fi data card E355, in the cigarette lighter of the cabs, using an adapter. Internet services can be accessed by any traveller on his/her laptop, iPad, phone or any other device using a password provided to the driver of the cab. Hundred vehicles equipped with the facility have been launched for the initiative.
