Railway minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, launched ‘High Speed Wi-fi’ facility at Visakhapatnam railway station of Waltair division of East coast railway through remote video link from Rail Bhavan, New Delhi.
“The service will be free for a reasonable amount of time. Our long-term goal is to make this project self-sustainable to allow for expansion to more stations and places,” Chairman and Managing Director of Railtel R. K. Bahuguna noted.
“With the addition of Visakhapatnam Railway Station, the network is now live in 10 stations across the country and we are scaling up our efforts to roll out quickly to cover some of smaller stations where connectivity is much more limited.
As Internet adoption grows in India, easy and affordable access to high-speed networks is the real need of the hour,” noted Gulzar Azad, Head of Access Project, Google India.
Well now, our waiting at the railway station will not be that boring. Vizag is catching up very well to it’s title of “Smart City”.
