ACT Fibernet has been enabling free internet access to all the people across major cities in India to further strengthen its initiative towards building a digitally inclusive society. In 2021 alone, the broadband company installed over 4,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai, which consumed over 2500 TB of data.

ACT Fibernet has undertaken multiple initiatives across different parts of the country in 2021 to build a digitally inclusive society and empower the citizens of India. The company installed more than 4300 Wi-Fi hotspots across Hyderabad, Chennai, and Bangalore. These hotspots, powered by ACT SmartFiber technology, are located across hospitals, bus stops, malls, public libraries, parks, and schools. ACT Fibernet saw the success of these projects in 2021, as the hotspots registered a total of over 1.4 million unique users, who consumed an average of 1.8 GB data each.

Commenting on the development, Bala Malladi, CEO, ACT Fibernet, said, “Today, we are at a stage where digital technologies are increasingly the heart of everyday interactions. So, having limited access to technology often results in limited access to basic needs and services. As a result, solving digital disparity is more important than before. At ACT Fibernet, this has always been important to us, and we are happy to contribute to bridging the digital divide through our Wi-Fi hotspots.”

Across all ACT Fibernet Wi-Fi hotspots, existing customers of ACT Fibernet get their current home plan broadband speeds when they log in with their ACT credentials. For example, if ACT Fibernet users have 100 Mbps plan speed at home, they will get 100 Mbps speed at these Wi-Fi hotspots too. Guest users have to log in through the ACT Free Wi-Fi portal with their phone number and one-time password (OTP) and can use free internet for 45 minutes at 40 Mbps speed and 1 GB data limit without any cost.
