New Delhi, Jan 2 (IANS) As Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Thursday announced free Wi-Fi facility on moving trains on its network, Twitter users hailed the decision though a few also demanded reduced fares instead.
Starting Thursday, passengers will be able to browse on free Wi-Fi while travelling on Delhi Metro’s Airport Express Line.
