Iarnród Éireann has announced that all of the company’s Intercity trains are now equipped with free WiFi.
Already operating on services on the 67 carriages of the Dublin-Cork fleet since last year, the service has proven a huge hit with rail customers on the route. The equipping of the new 234-carriage Intercity railcar fleet, by Irish company FleetConnect, means that every Intercity route on the network now has free WiFi.
The availability of free WiFi will be an added bonus for rail customers, already benefiting from a new, modern Intercity fleet, and an every seat, every train web sale at irishrail.ie
A spokesperson for Iarnród Éireann said: “One of the great benefits of rail travel is that you can use your travelling time productively, for work or leisure, and giving our customers free wi-fi will only add to this. Customers can use their smart phones, media devices, tablets, laptops and more while on their journey. Customers on the Intercity railcar fleet, which are now equipped with free wifi, also have plug sockets at every seat, so they can charge their devices as they travel for maximum convenience.”
