Back in January, Google launched its first free WiFi network at Mumbai Central Station as part of an ambitious collaboration with the RailTel Corporation.
The two companies announced that they planned to eventually roll out free WiFi to 400 railway stations across India using the extensive RailWire broadband infrastructure, with a goal of hitting over 100 stations by the end of 2016.
Over the following months, free hotspots appeared in several other stations across the country as part of the project. Today, Google’s free RailWire WiFi is available at around 74 locations, as seen below:
Ernakulam Junction South (Kochi)
Sealdah Railway Station
Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus
Kalyan Junction (Thane district)
Lokmanya Tilak Terminus
Dadar Central Railway station
Dadar Western Railway Station
Udaipur City Railway Station
Nampally (Hyderabad Deccan)
At all of these locations, travelers can access the free service by completing a multi-step verification process involving a One-Time-Password (OTP) and sign in form. If you have the WiFire app installed on your phone, though, you can save time connecting by letting WiFire automatically enter the OTP and fill out the sign in form for you.
If you’re looking to stay connected while on-the-go, download WiFire to connect to these RailWire networks—and over 4500+ public WiFi networks across India—with a single tap. Enjoy the free connection on your next rail journey!
