New Google campus at Hyderabad, more net access planned: Sundar Pichai
"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."
"We will also build a huge new campus in Hyderabad," he said, but did not disclose the amount of investment. The company now has 1500 employees in India.
"This country has given me and Google so much and I just hope we can give much more to the country," he said, adding: “A lot of what today is about is how we build products for the next billion Indian users, yet to come online."
