BSNL Public WiFi [email protected] First Impression: Good Speed and Stable Connection

Friday, 17 April 2015

BSNL in collobaration with Quadgen Wireless launched it's first public wifi hotspot in south india around Hussainsagar lake, which was inaugurated by Telangana IT minister KTR yesterday evening (16-Apr-2015).

I wanted to experience this first of it's kind service in Hyderabad, I thought I will test it today from my office as it is within 10km radius, But to my surprise I didn't get any open hotspot, then I decided to go to tankbund and check in the evening.

Around 6PM, I reached Tankbund. On the way to Tankbund I stopped at different places and checked for open hotspot but I didn't find any. Finally after reaching tankbund I got open hotspot with QFI-BSNL SSID.

How to connect?


When you connect to this hotspot, you will be redirected to login in screen where you can submit your mobile number (to get verification code), name and email. Enter the verification code you get via SMS to mobile number and click on submit then you will be connected and ready to use your 30 minute free quota.

When I checked the speed with speedtest.net, first time I got 9.61Mbps(DL)/2.83Mbps(UL) and second time I got 16.33Mbps(DL)/7.13Mbps(UL) speeds.

I could download a 1.1GB torrent file (not a pirated movie!!!) in less than 10minutes.

When I left the Tankbund after crossing approximately 100meters wifi hotspot got disconnected.

Screen-shots:

Here are the screen-shots of my phone taken at different times during this test : https://picasaweb.google.com/101485828988209649501/BSNLWifiTankbund?authuser=0&feat=directlink

My first impression after using for 20-25 minutes is speed is good and stable but limited range as opposed to proposed 10km range.

Have you used this service? Do let me know your opinion.
