Palampur hill station in Himachal Pradesh today became the first town in the State to have free public Wi-Fi facility. Himachal Pradesh chief minister Virbhadra Singh launched the service from capital Shimla. Singh said as many as 51 Wi-Fi hotspots were set up at different places to fully cover the town with the facility provided by Reliance Jio. He said the government would provide Wi-Fi facility in all government colleges of the state in the near future and would also implement the State-level Policy (SLP) for Wi-Fi. He also added that this would enable all telecom operators to install Wi-Fi equipment in urban areas of the State to make Himachal Pradesh, the first state to come up with such a policy.
