By : |December 23, 2016 0

Installing Wi-Fi at 100th railway station, the tech goliath, Google has announced the rollout of Railwire Wi-Fi at Udhagamandalam (Ooty) bringing in high-speed Internet.

Over 10 million people who pass through these stations every day now have an access to fast Internet speed to stream (or offline) an HD video, research their destination or download a new book or game for the journey ahead. The high-speed, quality Wi-Fi also enables the travellers to connect with their loved ones more regularly especially with video calling apps.

Free WiFi by Google-RailTel took off at Mumbai Central in January this year. Users in Pune, Bhubaneswar, Bhopal, Ranchi, Raipur, Vijayawada, Kacheguda (Hyderabad), Ernakulam Jn (Kochi), Vishakhapatnam, Jaipur, Ujjain and Allahabad are already using the free services. Google will continue to deploy the high-speed Wi-Fi in the next 300 stations.

Gulzar Azad, Country Head – Connectivity, Google India said, “We’re really excited about reaching this milestone and it is an incredible feeling to look back and see how far we’ve come since we announced that we were partnering with Indian Railways and RailTel to provide Wi-Fi at 400 railway stations throughout the country. But what has really inspired us are the stories of how people are using this high-speed access to the full and open Internet. They’re using Railwire Wi-Fi to be more productive with their time and to get things done more efficiently.”

With over 5 million monthly users, the Google Railtel Wi-Fi is helping millions of Indians discover the benefits of Internet with 15000 first time users connecting to the network every day.
