The Station Wi-fi For All project run by Google for the Railways currently connects millions of passengers with internet for free. When it is expanded to 400 stations, it is touted to become the world’s largest public Wi-Fi project.
Helping the Indian Railways spread connectivity to railway stations in cities and towns and every rail passenger is Internet giant Google.
June 20 is World Wi-Fi Day and Google and RailTel have bridged the digital divide by connecting rail passengers with free Wi-Fi at 119 railway stations.

Wi-Fi For All project comes without any strings attached – it’s free and has no download limit once a user logs on using an authentication code. This is in a way also helping India bridge the digital divide.
When the project was conceived in 2015, a railway officer told YourStory that RailTel Corporation—a public sector unit and the largest neutral telecom infrastructure provider in the country owning a pan-India optic fiber network on exclusive right of way along railway tracks—used to provide the connectivity through its broadband service RailWire. But, soon, the free service ran into problems and led to many complaints. As RailTel had already tied up with Google for providing technology, the Internet giant itself took over the responsibility of providing the service.
A railway officer said,
RailTel had roped in Google as its technology partner for setting up and providing a fast Wi-Fi network covering 400 stations. As of now, passengers can log in from 119 stations. Once implemented, this will be the largest public Wi-Fi project in the world.
Now, Google’s own routers connect users at blazing speeds that enable them to download entertainment, browse through mails or even to just check if the train they are on is running on time. The Wi-Fi is available to any user with a working mobile connection on a smartphone.
How does it operate? A user can log on by going to the website railwire.co.in, entering their phone number and choosing ‘receive SMS’; an OTP is generated and the user can then get connected.
Tej Kiran, a social media marketer who used the free Wi-Fi at Yesvantpur station in Bengaluru last week said internet speed was good. “In a matter of minutes, I found that some of the videos I had received on my WhatsApp, which I was unable to open earlier, had downloaded without much effort. I was able to view many videos which would have taken a lot of time to download through my phone service provider. There is no limit too on the volume and, once connected, the user is always connected to the system,” Kiran added.
Railway officers say the speed is such that passengers waiting for a train or those on a train at some stations can use this free facility to stream high-density videos, download movies, songs, do office work online, check emails and even play games.
At some stations, there are complaints that the Wi-Fi connection gets disconnected after 30 minutes. “We found free internet was leading to non-passengers using them too. We want only genuine passengers to use them. At passing stations, trains rarely stop for 30 minutes, so we will soon have a 30-minute free limit. If the user wants to continue they will have to pay,” an officer said.
Vyoma Media founder Shriranga K. Sudhakara says that his company’s 2,000-plus screens are all currently connected on the cloud in 21 railway divisions. Vyoma Media is an ad-tech company that places advertisements dynamically for brands on TV screens fixed at rail stations that display adverts as well as social messages.
“Now with fast Wi-Fi connectivity at railway stations, we can geo-locate users and create ads based on user interests,” Sudhakara says.
June 20, 2017 is the inaugural year of World Wi-Fi Day. It is being celebrated by the Wireless Broadband Alliance, which came up with this initiative in the hope to accelerate affordable wireless connectivity around the world.
Its hope for connectivity charter directs attention of cities, government bodies, telephone operators, technology vendors and internet giants towards the critical influence and success of wireless connectivity in bridging the digital divide.

There is not a single dedicated train to Belagavi - the 2nd capital of Karnataka. Every one in Bombay-Karnatak region have to depend on the Queen of SWR which was started in 1995. Since then no trains for BK region.

Train ridership is going up slowly but steadily as Bengalureans start leaving their cars home
All eyes will be on Namma Metro from Sunday as it connects the four corners of the city. Some 4 lakh people are expected to take the Metro and experts say traffic will come down by around 15-20 per cent. This is really great news for Bengaluru. And there’s more.
Away from the glare of the air-conditioned underground stations and spanking new cars, Metro’s poor country cousin – suburban rail – has been quietly sweating it out and

slowly but steadily gaining in popularity.
This sea change defies all logic. It just shouldn’t have been; most of the train timings don’t suit office-goers, approach roads to stations are a nightmare at most places and stations hardly have any facilities to write home about. Yet, Bengalureans are going out of their way to patronize the suburban trains.
MS Vinugopal works as a project manager with a multinational software company. Bangalore Mirror caught up with him at Carmelaram station when he was boarding a train to work. “My back pains have gone and even the cost incurred for traveling to work has come down drastically. I get to spend more time with my family by avoiding the city’s chaotic traffic bottlenecks that have become synonymous with the city’s tech corridors of Bellandur, Electronics City, Hebbal and Yeshvanthpur.”
Vinugopal switched jobs over two months back. He now works out of Manyata Tech Park; for eight years he worked in Bellandur at a company located in RMZ Ecoworld. He bought a house in Bellandur as he wanted to stay close to his workplace. Yet, he had to leave home by 8 for his shift that began at 10.30 am; and the drive to office took a toll on his health.
“A month back, I learned about Carmelaram station while reading a story on suburban trains and train timings in Bangalore Mirror. Now I take the 9:15 am train that connects three major tech parks along the Hosur-Yeshvantpur railway line. It takes me less than 40 minutes to reach my office in Manyata Tech Park which has good connectivity with Banaswadi Railway Station. This has helped me work better and my stress levels have come down as I don’t have to drive to work,” he said.
Footfalls have increased at the Carmelaram station (located on Gunjr-Doddakannelli Road, off Sarjapur Road) and the Bellandur Road railway station in the past few weeks. Not just techies, but people residing around the city’s tech corridors like Whitefield, Sarjapur, Bellandur and Hebbal have started using these lesser known stations either to get to Bangalore Central or Yeshvanthpur to catch long distance trains, or to get to these stations for a shorter onward journey towards their workplace in a cab.
Sample this: In 2015, hardly anybody boarded the train from Carmelaram station. Today, an average of 2,000 people take the train from this station every day (it could just be due to the summer vacations but we like to be optimistic).
Abhigna S, HR manager with a software company said, “Earlier I use to take the office cab from my home in Sarjapur to my office in Hebbal. My husband’s office is on outer ring road near Sarjapur and hence we bought a house there. It was getting difficult for me to maintain a work-life balance due to the commute. I used to start at 9 am and reach office after a couple of hours on the road. The return journey used to be just as hectic.
“Two months back, I got to know from a friend about the Carmelaram station. It was within walking distance from my house. The train timings suited me just fine and now I reach office in 35 minutes. The journey is quite safe as many women working in the tech corridor travel by train.”
Trainspotters, a group on messaging app Telegram, has around 2,000 members who update train timings and other details through animal emojis. Bangalore Mirror caught up with some of them when it boarded a “dog” train from Carmelaram station.
Krish Hanumanthu, an entrepreneur, said: “I am still struggling to get a hang of the group because I am new to train travel. But people who know it well get ready according to the time being flashed on the group, grab their breakfast and walk into the station just in time to catch the train. I don’t think travelling could get any better.”
Shashank Gowda, assistant manager with a software company said, “I shifted to Bengaluru from Hyderabad a month back and am currently staying with my brother who works at ITPL and stays in Bellandur. I started taking the train to my office in Manyata Tech Park. Now I have put plans to shifting to Hebbal on the back burner.”
Sanjeev V Dyamannavar from Praja RAAG, an advocacy group that has been pushing for suburban rail, said, “The buzz around the suburban railway network is making trains a preferred mode of transportation among techies. This mass mode of transport will help curb traffic and pollution.”
There has been quite a bit of lip service from the government on the suburban rail network but no real change on the ground. The Centre and Karnataka governments are at loggerheads over the funding pattern — the draft policy suggests that the Centre and state pay 20 per cent each and the rest be raised from the market with the State standing guarantor. Karnataka, however, wants a 50:50 funding pattern. Till this issue is resolved, there won’t be any fundamental change in the suburban rail network.
Like most other things in Bengaluru, techies will just have to find a way out for themselves.
Ipe Walliaveetil, who works with an NGO, said: “Not much has been done on the suburban railway frontier. Barring a few trains, not all run on time. If this can be checked, then train travel will attract more passengers. Also, the state government should work on providing better last mile connectivity from stations like Banaswadi, Byapannahalli and Hebbal.
