Uber to Offer Free Wi-Fi in India

Uber Technologies Inc. will give riders in India access to free Wi-Fi in cars booked through their app.

Starting Friday in Mumbai, Uber, in partnership with telecom operator Bharti Airtel Ltd., will give all its India drivers Airtel mobile devices that create 4G Wi-Fi hot spots in their cars.


Passengers who book a car through Uber will receive a password to access the Internet from the driver. The company says it is working on ways to prevent drivers offering the service to customers who book through rival apps and will track whether data usage corresponds with Uber rides.
