"Affordable smartphones have made it possible for the common man to experience the power of Internet. With our partnership with Google, we are very confident of rolling out a robust, scalable service at railway stations in the near future," Railtel Chairman and Managing Director R K Bahuguna said in a statement.
The project was announced last September by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Google headquarters in Mountain View.
"We are delighted to launch India's first high speed public Wi-Fi service in partnership with Indian Railways. By end of this year over 10 million people will be able to enjoy this experience at 100 stations spread across the country," Google South East Asia and India VP & Managing Director Rajan Anandan said.
