Free Wi-Fi will be rolled out on ScotRail’s new Class 380 fleet, the UK train operator and Transport Scotland revealed this week.
Nomad Digital Director, Haydn Abbott, claims that the ScotRail Class 380 Wi-Fi rollout is starting at an ideal time for its passengers: “We’re delighted to help connect yet another UK transport company with on-board Wi-Fi connectivity – especially ahead of such an exciting year when the eyes of the world will be on Scotland.”
The expansion of Wi-Fi represents the latest phase in the Scottish Government’s long-term ambition to provide Wi-Fi right across Scotland’s railways. The installations are scheduled to be completed ahead of some major events in Scotland, including the Commonwealth Games and Ryder Cup golf tournament.
Steve Montgomery, ScotRail Managing Director, said: “It is exciting that people will be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi on board our largest fleet of electric trains.
“We are confident that the expansion of Wi-Fi will be warmly welcomed by our customers, who increasingly want to stay connected during their journeys, whether for business or to chat with friends.”
