From TOI: Indian Railways plans to provide Internet connectivity in passanger trains in India. The facility will be first provided in premier trains like Rajdhani and Shatabdi and will be later rolled out to other Express and Mail trains as well. So the day is not far when you can use your laptop and be connected to the world while travelling across the length and breadth of the country in Indian trains.
In some ways Indian Railways has pioneered the ecommerce boom in travel sector by being the largest revenue generator in e-ticketing. Lets hope that with this project, they kick start an era of ubiquitous Internet connectivity in India.
