Google Fiber, a division of the recently restructured Google Inc., is still working oninitiatives beyond the range of core Google products. According to International Business Times, the megacorp is in talks to seal a deal with the India's state railway company to provide passengers with free Internet access.
The joint venture of Google and RailTel Corporation of India will be aiming at equipping over 400 train stations with Wi-Fi hotspots. TelekomTalk managed to get more details from an anonymous insider. The report suggests that access will be free of charge, requiring passengers to verify their phone numbers before logging in. A user will get a one-time password via SMS to log in and gain access to high-speed connection for 30 minutes. After the time limit is exceeded, connection will sustain, but at a lower speed. IBT also says that Google is also looking forward to expanding the coverage and “to provide Wi-Fi on board moving trains.”
