Delhi-Kolkata Rajdhani to get Wi-Fi service, other trains to follow

Passengers travelling on the Delhi-Kolkata Rajdhani would now be able to access internet through Wi-Fi connectivity, a railway official said Tuesday. Now you can enjoy Wi-Fi facility on Delhi-Kolkata Rajdhani

According to the reports, the Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal will announce the facility on the train at the Delhi station Tuesday.

"Many passengers feel the need to access internet while travelling," the official said.

The report says that passengers will be given login and password for the duration of the journey, based on their tickets and identity cards. It is still unknown whether this Wi-Fi duration will take into account delays caused by technical snags or bad scheduling. 

Passengers will be able to access email and browse the web with a maximum download speed of 4Mbps and a max upload speed of 512Kbps. It must be noted that you may get much lower speeds than that because the bandwidth is shared between all the passengers on the train. However, in case demand for bandwidth becomes high, the network will prioritise activities like email access over downloads or video streaming. 

Railway sources said this service would act as a pilot and is proposed to be introduced on 50 train services, including Shatabdi and Duronto trains, if and when it proves to be a successful venture.
