If you are using cab-hailing app Ola to book your autorickshaws, its time you enjoy free Wi-Fi on board.  As Ola has piloted its proprietary 'Auto-Connect Wifi' feature for 'Ola Autos' in major cities and will extend it to 73 cities in the country over the next few weeks.

These include the four metros as well as cities like Pune, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Jaipur and Hyderabad, among others.

"With Auto-Connect Wifi, we are reinventing the 3- wheelers and enabling a connected experience for our customers," Ola Senior Director and Category Head (Auto) Siddharth Agrawal said in a statement.

"Through this first-of-its-kind innovation, we want to not only improve the quality of time spent while on the road, but also help build easy access to millions of users across the country," Agrawal said.

With the latest initiative, 'Select' users will be able to connect seamlessly with the Wi-Fi while onboard the autorickshaw.

For first time users, once the Ola Auto ride starts, they need to tap on 'Wi-Fi' on the 'Track Your Ride' screen. They will find their unique Wi-Fi access point name and password to connect to the service.
