A very exciting news for railway commuters in India! Google and Indian Railways have joined forces together to create ‘Project Nilgiri’ that will deliver Wi-fi access to about 400 railway stations across India.
This project utilizes Google’s Fiber technology which currently is delivering fast internet services in US. The project when in full swing 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 selected railway stations throughout the nation to provide 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 but still, a free Wi-Fi service and that too from Google, it’s something to lookout for!!
