How To Access Free Wi-Fi at Railway Stations

Railway stations in India provide free WiFi services, although not all stations currently offer this facility. Major railway stations do have this service available. Access to the internet has become an important aspect of our daily lives. Without it, we feel incomplete, as many of our tasks require the internet.

While waiting for our train at the railway station, we often have some free time which we can use to finish several pending tasks on our mobile phones by using the internet. However, if the internet through our mobile network is not working, this time becomes useless.
