Lucky Enough To Get 24×7 Free Wi-Fi?

It’s been more than a year since the University has been providing  free Wi-Fi to its hostels. We students, as hostel boarders, feel proud of the fact that we are enjoying such premium services every day. But, nothing is perfect and likewise, our Wi-Fi is no exception.
