Google is shutting down RailWiFi, a program in which the company offered free Wi-Fi across 415 railway stations in India and over 5000 locations worldwide since 2016. This may seem bad news for internet users in India. RailTel, a service under the Ministry of Railways, had partnered with Google for five years to provide free WiFi in A1, A and C category stations. Google is winding down this contract as they feel that India already gets huge amount of data at low costs by telecom companies.
