RailTel In a bid to put Railways on the digital roadmap and complement Railways’ mobile applications, 115 railway stations in Karnataka are equipped with Wi-Fi facilities.

Commuters will now be able to access all the railways’ services using these applications, according to a release by South Western Railways.

Out of the 115 stations, 32 are under the Mysuru Division. The divisions of Bengaluru and Hubballi divisions have 27 stations each.

The project is under ‘Digital India’ initiative of the Union Government and was announced in the Railway Budget 2016.

The Railway Board had entrusted the work of the project to Rail-Tel at railway stations across India in collaboration with Google.

Rail-Tel is providing high-speed end-to-end network connectivity on optical fiber cables, while Google is providing radio access network equipment with technical support.

The work has been completed within 18 months and the Wi-Fi facility has been made available not only in bigger railway stations but also at small stations, according to the release.
