Mumbai Central now has free public WiFi from Google: Here’s how it works


RailTel and Google’s free high-speed public Wi-Fi service is now live at Mumbai Central station. Google CEO Sundar Pichai had announced that Mumbai Central will be the first station to get Wi-Fi under the scheme during his India visit in December 2015.

The company had first confirmed the plans when PM Narendra Modi had visited Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California in September 2015.

Google plans to roll out the service to 100 railway stations in India by end of 2016 and expects a potential 10 million users for the free Wi-Fi service.

In order to utilise the service, customers will have to select the RailWire Wi-Fi on the platform, and then open the page, where a log-in screen will appear. Customers will have to enter their mobile number and they will get a 4 digit OTP via SMS, which they will have to enter on the page to get access. More info
