Delhi government is considering mounting WiFi antennas on electricity poles instead of cellphone towers under its project to make Delhi a WiFi city in a year. The new ‘Samrt poles’ can be used for multiple purposes like mounting CCTV cameras too, Indian newspaper Indian Express reported.

The move has been motivated by the need to reduce expenditure. The smart poles will not only consume less electricity but wouldn’t require any addition allocation of land to build new towers too, the report said.

The government will not have to seek land from Delhi Development Authority (DDA) and as the electricity poles come under the Delhi government, the process will not face any bureaucratic hassle.

About one-fifth (2.5 lakh – 3 lakh) poles will be turned to smart poles under this model, according to the newspaper.

This WiFi model has come up mainly because of the bad feedback about the NDMC WiFi facilities in started in Connaught Place last year.

Before taking a final decision, a radio-frequency survey will be undertaken of the entire city to find any technical issues. The survey and the availability of electricity poles in different areas will guide the government`s strategy.
