WiFi Dabba sells Internet Data in India at Rs 20 / GB at a Chai wallah near you



The use of Wi-Fi hotspots in the country is slowly becoming mainstream as we are seeing more and more hotspot installations by various telecom operators like Airtel, Jio, BSNL, etc. However, most of these hotspots are usually available in prime locations across the city like malls, airports, railway stations, etc. Then what about local areas where the internet connectivity is poor? Well, don’t worry, WiFi Dabba has got you covered here.

WiFi Dabba, a Bangalore-based company, appears to be solving a major issue by providing Wi-Fi Hotspots in local areas. The company is setting up Wi-Fi Dabbas across various tea stalls (chai wallahs) and bakeries to provide a hotspot for the users who come for a quick snack or cutting chai. The company sells Data vouchers starting from Rs. 2 for 100MB data. These vouchers are also available for Rs 10 (500MB), and Rs 20 (1GB) and each of these vouchers are valid for 24 hours.

WiFi Dabba kickstarted in October last year, and now the company claims that they have sold more than 1.5 TB of data to users via its hotspots. The way the company is working is that they are getting bandwidth from ISPs in the city and are partnering up with small shop owners like chai wallahs for selling the data to the customers. Rather than focusing on Cafe Coffee Day, the small tea stalls and bakeries seem to be doing the job for them. The company is installing custom hardware at these stores and is sharing the revenues with the retailers.

Also do make a note that unlike some other WiFi providers, WiFi Dabba is not making money by selling ads and is purely dependent on selling the Internet bandwidth. The company also said that most of their users are returning customers and usually people who are coming to these tea stalls for tea, etc. are asking for the vouchers instead change. Talking about making profits, the company is not ready to disclose any info on that, but it looks like they are making a pretty penny out of this as the installations grow older.

Overall, to sum this up, it certainly looks like a great initiative as more people will now have access to the internet and can take advantage of these hotspot setups. Although it is limited to Bangalore city as of now, we hope we see more of these WiFi Dabbas across multiple cities and continue to provide the good service. With that said, let us know what do you think about this idea? Would you be interested in purchasing the vouchers and taking advantage of the hotspots?
