Free WiFi at 8 More Suburban Mumbai Railway Stations

After the successful launch of free public Wi-Fi at the Mumbai Central Station, it’s the turn of Mumbai suburban stations to enjoy this facility. The much-talked free Wi-Fi at the Mumbai Central Station was launched in the beginning of 2016 with RailTel’s partnership with Google.

Starting from 23rd August 2016, commuters at the Churchgate, Bandra, Bandra Terminus, Dadar Western Railway, Dadar Central Railway, Khar Road, Kalyan and Lokmanya Tilak stations can now access the service at a speed of 1 Gbps. While the service can be accessed at its highest speed for the first 30 minutes after which the speed will dwindle.

To use this service, select “RailWire” as the Wi-Fi setting on your Smartphone and enter your phone number in the Wi-Fi login screen and press “Receive SMS”. You will receive an SMS message with a 4-digit OTP code. Enter the code in the Wi-Fi login screen and press “Done”. Do not worry if you forget these steps. All the Wi-Fi enabled railway stations have put up banners to guide you through the connection process.

Ever since its launch, the Wi-Fi service has been receiving applauds from the users in Mumbai Central Station. Wi-Fi service launch is definitely a boon and will help in faster and better dissemination of information. It will enable people to work while travelling; students can download e-books, and look for information online. During emergency situations, prepaid users with no phone balance can use this facility for online calling and text messaging. In future, the Railway department can use this as a platform to give real-time information about train timing, train schedules, and delays.

Google says Allahabad, Patna, Jaipur and Ranchi are next on the list for the free WiFi.
