KOCHI (Metro Rail News): Commuters may now use Wi-Fi inside Metro coaches to access free internet, thanks to a pilot project launched by KMRL (Kochi Metro Rail Ltd) on its line no. 1 (Mandakini). The initiative is being carried out in collaboration with Worldshore, a Thiruvananthapuram-based company, with the help of PM’s Wi-Fi

Access Network Interface (PM-WANI) programme, which aims to increase broadband internet penetration in the country. If the trial is a success with a significant number of users, KMRL officials want to expand the service to all Metro trains. The Delhi Metro was the first metro system in the country to provide free Wi-Fi to passengers on board.

Commuters can access the KMRL Free Wi-Fi by selecting it from a list of accessible networks and signing up using their cellphone number and OTP. The project is part of a series of recent measures by KMRL to improve passenger services and attract more ridership, as the company’s annual losses continue to rise.
