The search engine giant Google has signed a partnership agreement with the state-owned operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL).

  • Google introduced a project to help the Indian customers who use 2G phones without requiring data or an internet connection
  • Google in partnership with Railtel and Indian Railways launched its Google Station platform in January 2016. It aimed to bring Wi-Fi to 400 train stations. The target was achieved and the partners have also expanded the program to provide Wi-Fi in thousands of public buildings and spaces across India.
