Google to provide free WiFi across 400 railway stations in India

This project makes use of Google’s Fiber technology which currently is providing fast internet services in US. The project when started will give users access to high speed internet for the first 30 minutes and thereafter the speed will drop and become slow. The connection of the users will however still be active.

With this initiative, Google and Indian Railways are jointly aiming to set up WiFi hotspots across select railway stations through out the nation to offer seamless connectivity to passengers.

However, it is expected that the first phase of the project shall be up and running in a span of 4 months.
