Delhi Metro Rail Corporation will take adequate steps to solve this mobile network problem, which is mostly witnessed on the underground metro stations  

New Delhi: For Delhi Metro commuters, the agonisingly long wait for mobile networks connectivity during their journeys will soon be brought to an end by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), who will take adequate steps to rectify this connectivity problem before the end of February, a DMRC official said.

The official added that to boost signal connectivity, over 300 personnel have already been deployed to work at night and boosters are being installed in underground metro stations, particularly on Delhi Metro’s Pink Line and Magenta Line, where most of the commuters face the mobile signal problem.

At present, work is underway at the Delhi Metro Pink Line’s underground stretch from Bhikaji Cama to Hazrat Nizamuddin, while Kalkaji Mandir and Janakpuri West undergo similar woes on the Magenta Line. Problems have also been found in some other underground stretches of Blue Line, Yellow Line and Airport Express Line. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) was given the task of carrying out the survey, the DMRC official said.

He added that on the basis of the survey, certain weak spots were identified. Thus, to improve the mobile network on those metro sections, signal boosters will be placed.

In another step to reach out to its user, the DMRC has opened accounts on Twitter and Facebook, and plan to connect to other social media accounts like Instagram in the future.
