Cafe Coffee Day, O-Zone Networks tie up to offer free Wi-Fi at cafes
Cafe Coffee Day is undoubtedly is one of the favorite hangout location for college students, young professionals and couples alike. Till now, CCD patrons needed to pay for the internet facility, and that discouraged many from visiting the cafe but not anymore. Café Coffee Day will now be offering free Wi-Fi internet access to customers at its cafes in select cities across the country. This move was taken by CCD considering the growing usage of smart-phones and increasing demand for data while away from the office or home. CCD felt that there is a strong need for Wi-Fi at hangouts in places frequented by people.
Café Coffee Day has tied up with India’s leading Wi-Fi service provider O-Zone Networks – Each of the outlets will get a dedicated leased line from O-Zone enabling free high-speed internet connectivity to its customers. The installation of Wi-Fi infrastructure at CCD outlets will be done in a phased manner. In the first phase, 225 CCD outlets in Delhi and Bangalore have already gone live with Wi-Fi capability. In the next phase, the roll out will include CCD outlets in other cities including Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Goa.
The Wi-Fi service at CCD will be offered free of charge for the first 30 minutes. Post this, the user will have to pay a nominal amount starting at Rs. 15 for 30 minutes for one GB usage.
Apart from Wi-Fi, CCD will also get bandwidth and IP to run the café chain’s PoS systems and camera. In addition to that, CCD users in 24 CCD outlets in the initial phase will be able to avail O-Zone’s association with SpeedFetch to download digital content such as games, Hollywood and Bollywood content at high speeds.
So, next time you visit a CCD outlet, do not forget to connect & enjoy the Wi-Fi service at the cafe.
