Huawei-Airtel get going on EasyCabs to promote WiFi internet services

Huawei Device has partnered Bharti Airtel to provide free 3G internet services via WiFi for commuters using radio taxi service EasyCabs in Delhi-NCR. The WiFi offer will be available from 28 June to 27 September 2013 in 100 Easycabs.

On the initiative, Victor Shan, president, Huawei Device India, said, “We are really excited to launch 3G WiFi connectivity on the go in EasyCabs, powered by Airtel’s high speed 3G internet and enabled by Huawei E355 WiFi data card. As consumers continue to own multiple WiFi-enabled devices like smartphones, laptops, tablets and gaming devices, we hope that they can utilise their valued time and make the most out of their journey by enjoying faster emailing, surfing, gaming, movies and video clips."

Rohit Gothi, hub CEO, Bharti Airtel, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan, added, “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 has installed its E355 WiFi data card combined with Airtel 3G internet services in the select cabs. Users will be able to access the web on any internet-enabled device during their commute using a password provided. Multiple commuters in the cab will be able to avail the free WiFi, informed a Huawei statement.

The Huawei E355 data card is a WiFi dongle that can be used across service providers.
