Google and Cisco have announced a partnership to provide free high-speed Wi-Fi across Wi-Fi hotspots in India. This would be high-speed internet access through the Google Station service.   

The web access enabled here, would be under open Wi-Fi and this would be implemented beginning from September this year; in the initial stages, more than 200 areas in Bangalore itself would be covered through Google and Cisco’s high-speed internet service. Then there would reportedly be another 300 additional locations; including the likes of hospitals, government offices, and key bus stations.  

As of now, it is worth remembering that Google’s high-speed internet is already active in nearly 500 railway stations in India. This service is enabled via the Google-RailTel partnership. Under this system, mobile users can enjoy high-speed internet access inside railway platforms.  

In summary, the over 500 Bangalore locations covered by high-speed Wi-Fi, connectivity should not become an issue, especially during the intra-city move. In this regard, Google’s Railtel open Wi-Fi has already proved to be a hit with railway commuters at the Bangalore City Railway Station; more such services should only benefit the public.  

Also, Google has been having tie-ups with BSNL which has resulted in high-speed Wi-Fi hotspots across the country in nearly 40,000 locations. Now, with the continued public Wi-Fi project, the entire country could potentially be Wi-Fied in comparatively lesser time.
