Google promises that it’s Wi-Fi will be many times faster than what most people in India have access to today. The network is built for a wide coverage and high capacity usage unlike a typical Wi-Fi hotspot which offers connectivity in limited area. The project will eventually be rolled out to cover 400 railway stations across India.
When it gets completed, this will rank it as the largest public Wi-Fi project in India, and among the largest in the world, by number of potential users.
