Howrah Rajdhani Express starts free Wi-Fi service
There is a good news for the passengers who need to regularly use the Delhi Kolkata Rajdhani. The train would now be facilitated with the Wi-Fi connectivity which will allow the passengers to connect to the internet on the go. Many passengers find the need to connect to the internet while traveling, and this will just provide them with some relief. The passengers will be able to access email and browse the web, maximum download speed would be 4Mbps and the maximum upload speed would be 512 Kbps.
The Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal launched the Wi-Fi facility on last Tuesday at the Delhi station. The passengers will be given a login and password for the duration of their journey, which will be based on their tickets and identity cards. However, it remains to be seen whether it will be affected by the technical snags or bad scheduling.
It is a good initiative on the part of the Railways and based on the experience, it will be introduced on 50 other train services as well, including Shatabdi and Duronto. The Wi-Fi facility on the Rajdhani is being used a pilot to see whether it turns out to be a successful venture or not.
