Google Bringing Free Wi-Fi To Indian Train Stations

11 October 2015

Words by AFP Relaxnews

More than 100 stations across the country will boast superfast wireless broadband by the end of 2016.

However, according to Google's CEO, Sundar Pichai, the initiative will eventually cover 400 train stations, making it the largest public Wi-Fi project in India.

The initiative is also a huge effort to help "the next billion" get online.

India is already home to 300 million internet users, making it, according to Google, second only to China, in size, and the wi-fi connection in most cases will be a faster connection to the web than most current users have ever experienced.
