There’s good news for cricket fans in India planning to watch the upcoming T20 World Cup matches live at stadiums. Reliance Jio today announced free high-speed Wi-Fi with unlimited downloads at six stadiums across the country.

The service offered by Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited’s Jionet will be available in Bangalore (M Chinnaswamy Stadium), Dharmashala (Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium) , Kolkata (Eden Gardens), Mohali (Punjab Cricket Association Stadium), New Delhi (Feroz Shah Kotla) and Mumbai (Wankhede Stadium). The service provider has fixed a certain range to allow only spectators inside these stadiums to have access.

Here’s how spectators can connect to Jionet services:

*Activate Wi-Fi on the smartphone and select ‘Reliance JioNet WiFi’
*Visit the login page
*Enter mobile number and generate OTP (sent via SMS)
*Log-in with the OTP

The OTP is valid for 24 hours only. The user will be automatically logged out if there is no internet activity for 30 minutes. Jionet claims to offer download speeds of 50 mbps. 

Recently, it claims to have tested the same during a match at Wankhede in which downloads of over 22TB occured on its networks.

“To make this possible, Jionet’s Wi-Fi access points (APs) will cover the entire stadium with a seating capacity of minimum 20,000. Jionet High Density is designed to provide stable high-quality Wi-Fi coverage to individuals in a densely packed groups, at which standard Wi-Fi deployments fail. High-Density Wi-Fi (HD Wi-Fi) creates lots of small radio footprints so as to be able to cater for pockets of clients in localised areas across the stadium. Thus, keeping the radio traffic between the user and the AP low, avoiding interference and congestion both,” the company said in a statement.
