The telecom wing of the Indian Railway, RailTel, has signed an agreement with the subsidiary of Google India to provide Wi-Fi facilities at 400 stations across the country, the government said.

In a written reply to Rajya Sabha, Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha said that RailTel Corporation of India Ltd (RCIL), a PSU under Railway Ministry, signed an agreement with Mahataa Information India Pvt Ltd (MIIPL), an arm of Google Inc, to equip 400 stations with Wi-Fi in two phases

In first phase, as many as 100 stations out of the total A1 and A categories would be covered with the offering, while the facility would be extended to 300 stations in the second phase. Non-suburban stations with an annual passenger earning of more than Rs 60 crore are categorized as A1 stations, while those with yearly passenger income from Rs 8 crore to Rs 60 crore fall under the category of A stations.

As per reports, Mumbai Central is expected to be among the first railway stations to boast the Wi-Fi services. It will be free for users for the first 30 minutes, and beyond that they will be charged a particular amount. Google has promised high-speed connectivity with the ability to download a movie in just four minutes.

The capital expenditure for the project would be incurred by RCIL and MIIPL, the minster added.
