Google’s high speed WiFi has reached its 100th destination. With the availability of Google’s Railwire WiFi in Udhagamandalam station, the search giant has connected 100 of the busiest railway stations across India with free internet access.
Railwire WiFi, a collaboration between Google and RailTel has been one of the most ambitious projects of company CEO Sundar Pichai. With Railwire, Google is literally taking internet to last mile connectivity and has given access to internet to around 10 million people visiting these stations every day now. Google’s Railwire WiFi is capable of streaming HD videos and is seen as ideal for downloading offline videos or ebook or a game for the journey ahead.
Google says with Railwire free WiFi, nearly 15,000 people access Internet for the first time ever. Back in September 2015, CEO Sundar Pichai had announced the ambitious project to connect 400 railway stations with free wireless internet access.
