CCD Partners O-Zone To Offer Free Wi-Fi Over Leased Line

CCD-free-wifiPopular coffee chain Cafe Coffee Day (CCD) has partnered with O-Zone Networks to provide free WiFi service to its customers at its cafes across the country. In the first phase the free WiFi will be rolled out at 225 cafes starting with Delhi and Bangalore.

Though CCD earlier used to offer free WiFI, the difference this time is the service will be reached to its customers through dedicated leased lines which will offer higher speed.

However, the WiFi service is not entirely free. It will be offered free of charge for the first 30 minutes. Post this, the user will have to pay Rs. 15 for 30 minutes for 1 GB usage.

“Today with the rise of smart phones, there is not only an increasing need to stay connected at all times but also a demand for high-speed connections since our audiences are multi-tasking on various applications and time is of the essence. With our association with O-Zone Networks, we aim to provide this service to our patrons who will now be able to enjoy free, fast and secure Wi-Fi connection and benefit from the enhanced café experience,” said Venu Madhav, CEO, Café Coffee Day.

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 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.

Besides Wi-Fi, O-Zone Networks will offer CCD connectivity and bandwidth for its PoS (point of sale) systems and its CCTV 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 hyper speeds.

“O-Zone Networks is very excited about this new strategic partnership with CCD. We are the market leaders in providing Public Wi-Fi service and we believe this collaboration is another step forward in our endeavor to establish a large “neutral” network for our partners to broadcast their SSIDs to their subscribers like Reliance Communication and others in the near future,” said Sanjeev ‘Bobby’ Sarin, Founder and CEO of O-Zone Networks.

CCD said the longer a user uses Wi-Fi at the café or the more data they consume, the lower will be the usage amount. Additionally, SpeedFetch users in the 24 cafes in Delhi will have unlimited access to content at zero bandwidth cost.
