You can now enjoy this in few areas in Chennai- Broadway (Flower Bazaar) bus stand, KK Nagar RTO and taluk offices, Vandalur Zoo, Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore and at the Shore Temple in Mamallapuram. BSNL plans to cover more areas in two months. Based on the number of people, position and surroundings, one can enjoy 8 mbps speed.
