Free WiFi coming to Northern Ireland Translink commuters

Now then, this absolutely rocks. WiFi on trains makes a lot of sense.

It’s not necessarily new — indeed I’ve been using WiFi on trains in the UK for quite a while, but only on big trunk routes, not smaller commuter lines.

Here’s the overview thanks to cellular-news:

Translink NI Railways, the Northern Ireland UK state-owned rail operator, is adding free broadband internet on its trains to improve customer service for over 10 million passenger journeys a year­.

Nomad Digital is the company behind it.
