To further consolidate its position Microsense has built networks in partnership with telecom providers such as Airtel and MTNL, which will allow them to access the huge subscriber base of the service providers for Wi-Fi usage.

There are three offers under the prepaid category - Rs 35 for 15 minutes, Rs 55 for 30 minutes and Rs 105 for 60 minutes. Microsense roaming will also allow users to use the same account across the country.
