Google’s “Internet Bus” will crisscross Kerala covering eight towns in the next 25 days providing online experience to the people of the state.
The bus - a custom desgined mobile vehicle, which started from Tamil Nadu in February this year, has already travelled over 10,000 km across four states in the last 10 months, Dr Prasad Ram, Head R&D Google India, told reporters here. It would travel through Kochi, Alapuzha, Kollam, Thiruvananthapuram, Thrissur, Palakkad, Kozhikode and Thalassery, he said.
“The bus journey has touched the lives of over 400,000 Indians across Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, helping them understand how they can use internet to do everyday things more easily,” he said.
The internet bus would focus on four themes - Information, Communication, Entertainment and Education and showcase informative content in both English and Malayalam to provide users an understanding of how internet can be used, he said.
