New Google campus at Hyderabad, more net access planned: Pichai

New Delhi, Dec 16 (IANS) Google will build a new campus at Hyderabad, even as it is working towards including as many people as possible to use the Internet in India, its chief executive, Sundar Pichai, said here on Wednesday.

“In our attempt to provide Internet access to people, we have decided to provide Wi-Fi in 400 railway stations with RailTel. The 100 stations will come online by 2016 end. Mumbai Central station will be online by January,” Pichai said at an event here.

This was also a part of the assurance which Google gave to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, when he visited the search engine giant’s headquarters at Mountain View, Santa Clara County in California in September this year.

Regarding the company’s expansion plans in India, he said: “We will ramp up our engineering investments at our Bangalore and Hyderabad facilities.”
