The entire fleet of 47 trains operated by Translink NI Railways in Northern Ireland is being equipped with free WiFi. Nomad Digital, which has already implemented wireless internet access on Amtrak and Virgin Trains, expects the full roll-out to be completed by the autumn.
David Lowry, Senior Technical Engineer for Translink N I Railways, said “Free WiFi is an added extra to travel on trains. More and more people are using their train commute to access their emails or catch up on social media, allowing them to make more of their time. This new free WiFI facility will add value and make it even easier for our passengers to stay in touch.”
Mobile WiFi is also being added to Translink Goldline coaches, which is part of the same transport group.
