Google is collaborating with Cisco for its ‘gStation’ offering that provides access to free and high-speed WiFi at public locations across India. Under the partnership, Cisco is providing the network infrastructure and about 25 locations already live in Bengaluru and another 200 locations will go live in the next 2-3 months in the city.

These locations include public spaces like bus stops, hospitals and government offices among others. Post that, it will be extended to 300 more locations in Bengaluru, and more cities in the country as well

The project is being rolled out in partnership with D-VoiS - an Internet service provider in Bengaluru. The next locations being looked at include outskirts of Delhi, and few cities in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
