While the details are scarce at the time of writing this article, previously RailTel had carried out a pilot project to provide free WiFi at the Bangalore City Railway Station under the RailWire Retail Broadband initiative. At that time, to access the WiFi connectivity users had to request access by sending their mobile numbers, following which the password was sent to them via SMS.

It’s worth noting that in July 2014, Railway had also proposed Wi-Fi facility at ‘A1’ & ‘A’ category stations and in 50 rakes of important trains in Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duranto category. This is in addition to Wi-Fi facility provided in 3 rakes of Howrah-New Delhi-Howrah Rajdhani Express as a pilot project.

For ages, the Railway Ministry has attempted to bring WiFi for passengers, however made little progress after the pilot runs.
