Google Station Aims To Provide Free Public Wi-Fi To Railway Stations Across The World
At its Google for India event in New Delhi, the Mountain View major introduced a new platform called Google Station. After the successfully beta testing public Wi-Fi at 52 railway stations across India, Google wants to expand it to other public places in India, and also to other countries across the globe. Google mentioned at the event that there are currently 3.5 million monthly active users and 15,000 new users everyday on the public railway Wi-Fi.
Google had started this initiative in partnership with RailTel and Indian Railways.
Google is inviting partners for the Google Station initiative. The tech engine giant is seeking out for partners such as large venues and organisations, network operators, fiber providers, system integrators, and infrastructure companies.
Google claims that the Google Station will provide reliable, safe, secure, and fast Wi-Fi. Currently, the free Wi-Fi network is expected to expand up to 100 cities in India and other places across the globe soon. The image below outlines the steps to connect to a Google Station Wi-Fi.
