Delhi Metro is not the only one working on Free Wi-Fi. Google is woking with the Indian Railways and Railtel to provide High-Speed Wireless Internet access to 100 Railway stations by the end of this year and a total of 400 Stations in the coming years. A service which will be free to all passengers and visitors.

The service has already been launched at 9 stations including Bhopal, Bhubaneshwar, Ernakulam Jn, Kacheguda, Pune, Raipur, Ranchi, Vijayawada, and Vishakhapatnam. In January, the service was launched at Mumbai Central which makes the list a complete 10.

Indian Railway Free Wifi

Google aims to make free Wi-Fi available to 10 Million Indians every day in its goal to hit 100 Railway stations by the end of 2016. The service is already a success according to Google with over 100,000 users logging in daily at Mumbai Central alone.

Google’s target of 400 stations may take a few years to come, but the service will be appreciated by everyone none the less.

    I don’t think anyone would provide free internet. Surely, they are getting paid by govt. And govt. Is using our tax money or the other investments we make in govt. Depts.

    I was at Pune Station recently when I stumbled upon an access point named “RailWire.” At first I thought it must be someone’s hotspot but I tried connecting nevertheless. And yes, it did work!
    SpeedTest Down speed: 24.43 Mbps
    SpeedTest Up Speed: 12.02 Mbps
    P.s. Speed will obviously go down with an increase in the number of users.
