Google has partnered with PSU RailTel to implement the Wi-Fi facilities at railway stations in India. The company will be using RailTel’s fibre optic network to connect stations. Google already announced its plans to connect 400 railway stations across the country through Wi-Fi earlier this year. The company is currently running a pilot project in Mumbai Central station that will go live in January 2016. Pichai said that by the end of 2016, 100 stations will get free Wi-Fi.

Pichai also announced that Google is exploring ways to bring Project Loon to India. The idea behind the project is to bring internet facilities to hard-to-access rural areas via hot air balloons. The project is currently awaiting clearance from several Indian ministries.
