On the occasion of World Telecom Day on Friday, state-run telecom major BSNL has partnered with Google to increase access to its Wi-Fi footprint in the country.

With the launch of this service, people across the country will be able to enjoy BSNL’s free Wi-Fi services. This initiative will allow customers use BSNL’s high speed internet services on Wi-Fi.

BSNL is also taking steps to increase the rural Wi-Fi footprint, promoting the government’s ‘Digital India’ initiative.

“We have been partnering with various technology companies upgrading our platform and increasing our customer reach in this era of ever-increasing demand of high speed internet”, BSNL Director (CFA) Vivek Bansal said.

BSNL Chairman Anupam Shrivastav on Friday performed the soft launch of the BSNL - Google Station free WiFi services.

There are 38,000 BSNL Wi-Fi hotspot locations operational in India. One can access these by buying Wi-Fi vouchers that are priced starting at Rs 19.
