Bengaluru: Good news for rail commuters in India! Google and Indian Railways have collaborated together…
Bangalore City railway station has become the first in the country to have its own WiFi network for passengers.
The facility will be made available to passengers, on their mobile phones, free of charge for the first 30 minutes. After that, you can purchase more browsing time online through your credit card, or buy a scratch card at the WiFi help desk. These are priced at Rs 25 for 30 minutes and Rs 35 for one hour, and are valid for 24 hours.
RailWire, a broadband distribution model of RailTel Corporation of India, under the Railway Ministry, is facilitating the bandwith for the station’s WiFi. RailTel will soon provide Wi-Fi facilities at other A1 & A category stations as well. Connaught Place in Delhi, Dadar and CST in Mumbai, and Thane stations are reportedly on the roadmap, but no confirmation as to which station which get the upgrade next.
