Hyderabad: Internet giant Google plans to open its own “permanent and big” campus in Hyderabad and is set to sign an MoU with Telangana government shortly to take up the venture.
“We are likely to sign MoU with Google. They are likely to open their campus here in Hyderabad. It will be the third campus they will have
after the US and the UK,” Telangana IT, Electronics and Communications Secretary Harpreet Singh told PTI.
Google currently operates from rented premises here but wants to move to a “permanent campus”, he said, adding the tech major would sign an MoU with the state government shortly.
He, however, declined to go into further details of the proposed venture, saying a press conference is scheduled to be held shortly on this but added that it would be a “big campus”.
Singh also said Cisco, Airtel, Vodafone and a Taiwanese company, among others, have responded to the expression of interest floated by the government on proposed venture to make Hyderabad a Wi-Fi enabled city.
“Many of them are partnering and coming,” Singh said, adding the Taiwanese firm, in fact, was behind making Taipei a wi-fi enabled city.
