Indian Railway’s arm, Railtel, which provides Internet services as Rail Wire via its extensive network along with Google,on Friday announced the launch of free high-speed public Wi-Fi services at Visakhapatnam Railway Station, which will benefit over 1.9 lakh visitors daily.
With this launch, Google has successfully rolled out public Wi-Fi services across 10 key railways stationsnow, enabling access to over 1.5 million Indians daily as part of the world’s largest public Wi-Fi project, according to a Google press release.
Starting with the first launch at Mumbai Central in January this year, the list
of stations now offering public Wi-Fi services includes Pune, Bhubaneshwar, Bhopal, Ranchi, Raipur, Vijayawada, Kacheguda (Hyderabad), Ernakulum Jn (Kochi) and Visakhapatnam. As the project picks up pace, the target is to cover 100 stations by end of 2016. The service will be formally inaugurated by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu soon.
The service built over the fibre network of Railtel is designed to offer high speed broadband experience to users.
Travellers passing through these stations will now be able to easily stream a high definition video, research their destination, download a book or a new game for their journey.
“With the addition of Visakhapatnam Railway Station, the network is now live in 10 stations across the country and we are scaling up our efforts to roll out quickly to cover some of smaller stations where connectivity is much more limited.
As Internet adoption grows in India, easy and affordable access to high-speed networks is the real need of the hour,” noted Gulzar Azad, Head of Access Project, Google India.
“The service will be free for a reasonable amount of time. Our long-term goal is to make this project self-sustainable to allow for expansion to more stations and places,” Chairman and Managing Director of Railtel R. K. Bahuguna noted.
