New Delhi: Tech giant Google today said it has partnered with Larsen & Toubro to set up 150 ‘Google Station’ Wi-Fi hotspots in Pune as part of Pune Smart City Development Corporation Ltd’s Smart City project. The US-based firm already has a partnership with RailTel, under which Wi-Fi Internet services are provided at over 270 railway stations in the country.
“Potentially, three million Punekars can now get online within seconds, to message friends, pay bills, shop online, watch music videos — and do millions of other things — at locations all around the city,” Google said in a statement.
Google said these hotspots will be available at public places like gardens, hospitals and police stations, helping people get access to free Wi-Fi.
“Our aim with Google Station is to bring fast Wi-Fi to more users in more places within India. We built Google Station to be both the highest-quality and easiest Wi-Fi service for users and the easiest for partners to deploy,” Google Station Product Management Director Vinay Goel said.
