    But do they have any profit in doing this or what?
    I mean giving 11 to 54 MBps free isn't an easy job, ain't it?

    It's not free everywhere. I think they charge at the airports(not sure).

    Wi-fi is free at a couple of malls here.

    Yup, wifi is not free at all places. they charge around 35 bucks at airports. They charge u thru prepaid cards. Further, it is free only in few zones.
