The Punjab government will provide free Wi-Fi facility in all government Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs), polytechnics and engineering colleges of the state, Technical Education minister Charanjit Singh Channi said today.

He said that that an MoU for providing free wi-fi in the campuses of government ITIs, polytechnics and engineering colleges was signed today between private firm Reliance Jio and Punjab government today.

He said that Reliance Jio would set up the infrastructure and provide its services free of cost. In addition, the company will also bear the cost of equipment and electricity required for the functioning of Wi-Fi, he said.

“All the principals of respective colleges have been directed to provide suitable space and security for Wi-Fi and other relevant network equipment,” he said. The minister said that all objectionable websites would  be blocked as per Government of India’s directions.

Reliance Jio’s free WiFi service is known as JioNet, and it is available in some cities already. Reliance Jio users who recharge for the service, will find that the service also gives them access to some data on the Jio free WiFi services. Users can login to the Jio WiFi with their Jio number, and access the high speed internet via WiFi.

However, the current Reliance Jio plans don’t specify whether users are getting access to some Jio WiFi or not.

The principals of the institutions concerned have been directed to provide suitable space and security for the proposed Wi-Fi service and relevant network equipment required.
