FREE Wi-Fi Connectivity at New Delhi Railway Station very soon

Waiting for a train to arrive will no longer be boring as Railways is equipping India's busiest station with free Wi-Fi connectivity, a first in the country, to ensure value-added amenity for passengers. New Delhi railway station, which handles about 300 trains and five lakh passengers a day, will be the first Wi-Fi enabled station in the country to have such a modern facility like major international airports.

A Mumbai-based company has been given the job to make the New Delhi station a Wi-Fi enabled station. Wi-Fi is a popular networking technology which uses radio waves to provide wireless high-speed Internet and network connections.

Once operational, passengers on all 16 platforms of the station will be able to access Wi-Fi from their laptops of mobile phones. The New Delhi station was chosen on a pilot basis to introduce the facility at an estimated cost of Rs. 80 lakhs. The system is expected to be operational in 3/4 months.

The company will install towers at strategic locations to provide the facility, which will be extended to other stations in due course. Railways have already made Howrah Rajdhani trains Wi-Fi enabled. There are also plans to replace information kiosks with tablet computers at New Delhi station.
