RailTel Corporation will provide Internet services as RailWire via its extensive fibre network in partnership with Google.
"Affordable smartphones have made it possible for the common masses to experience the power of Internet. With our partnership with Google, we are confident of rolling out a robust, scalable service at railway stations in the near future," RailTel CMD R.K. Bahuguna said.
"By the year-end, over 10 million people will be able to enjoy Internet experience at 100 stations across India," Google's South East Asia and India vice president Rajan Anandan assured.
Google has committed to collaborate with RailTel and Indian Railways to expand the network to the remaining stations by the year-end, followed by another 400 railway stations thereafter.
