I don't expect, I hope. There's a difference between the two. We all know that this budget will also not going to be implemented even 70% - most of the projects will not be completed properly, money will not be utilized and will warm pockets of a certain section of people etc. etc. - and the same story will continue. But there's no harm in hoping, I guess.

Forget speed, you will have to bribe some railway official in train to access it properly.

Haha, govt and technology do not blend together.

Do you know sometimes, I had to go stand in a stupid line and fill a junk form just to recharge my BSNL 3g connection. To add insult to injury, they will take atleast 10 mins on one guy. Bravo, government doesn't understand, it has no business in business.

Send a message if you get this much promised hogwash.

Re: Indian Railways Announces Free Wi-Fi For Passengers - Will You Pay for It?

Wifi if provided will be pretty spotty as it will mostly have to leverage the existing 3G connections enroute. That's what i believe.
I have travelled in Amtrak train and Megabus in US and they had free wifi but speeds were not great, may be under 1 Mbps, ok for casual browsing and all, not for streaming etc. Also it used to go up and down as the train / bus traveled.

Now train collisions would be attributed to negligence of ISPs providers. Excessive bandwidth got into the mind of train official and he slept! or maybe he went wanking using the free wifi sevices and ...trains collided......Indian railways is never at fault.
