BANGALORE: Now, passengers at the Bangalore City Railway Station can enjoy free high-speed internet over Bluetooth or WiFi on their smartphones or laptops.
RailWire Express Network, an initiative of RailTel Corporation of India, launched the Blufi service exclusively for the city’s premier railway station on Friday. “With this service, we want to reach out to the public by providing reliable internet services,” said Manohar Raja, general manager of RailTel.
Explaining how the service works, Raja said that each platform at the station had a router installed. “The technology here is Blufi. Users with Bluetooth-enabled devices can access the service,” he said.
Users can be assured about the reliability of the network. “To check on malicious acts, our server will have a record of every mobile number and its activity. Our server has all the necessary filters and blockers,” Raja said.
