To connect to this WiFi network, an android-based mobile app called Wi-DOT is currently available on the Google Play Store.

PM-WANI is an ambitious project of the Indian government’s Department of Telecom to connect all silo Wi-Fi networks for simplicity of use and to spread broadband usage among the masses.

According to Rajkumar Upadhyay, C-Executive DOT’s Director and Chairman, “the synergistic engagement between C-DOT and RailTel will encourage innovation leading to design, development, and deployment of indigenous technology in national networks including the Indian Railways.”
