HYDERABAD: As part of the Indian Railways’ digital inclusion initiative, the South Central Railway (SCR) extended the high-speed WiFi facility to 588 stations. All the stations except the ‘halt stations’ under the SCR zone will now allow users to connect to high-speed Internet.
According to SCR officials, the entire network is now covered with Optical Fibre Cable (OFC). The 588 stations include 30 major Non-Suburban Grade stations (NSG1, NSG2 and NSG3 category) and 558 medium and small stations.
The WiFi will be free for the first 30 minutes of usage every day at 1 mbps speed, after which users will have to extend the same by paying nominal charges.
