Hyderabad: Metro rides in Hyderabad are set to become a better experience with Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited joining hands with a private agency to furnish trains with a revolutionary technology that allows users to seamlessly access mobile applications.
SugarBox "Zones" have been set up in all trains and at nine major metro stations across the city where commuters can sign in to SugarBox, watch movies and listen to music at the click of a button.
SugarBox is a local Wi-Fi network that eliminates the user's dependence on mobile data and provides uninterrupted access to Apps, without any data charges. Currently, users can access content on the Zee5 or the FreePlay App on both Android and iOS. "We are happy to announce Hyderabad Metro's collaboration with SugarBox Networks," said NVS Reddy, managing director, Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd.
"This will bring seamless on-the-go entertainment to commuters. As we promised, Hyderabad Metro is becoming technologically advanced day by day."
He said, "SugarBox is a local Wi-Fi system where you don't need any mobile data to stream content through partner apps. We are all aware that mobile data costs are increasing and a service like this, which enables consumers to download an entire movie in three minutes, is just what we need. With this new addition, we are confident that Hyderabadis will love the metro experience even more. "...
