WiFi Available on VIA’s Corridor Trains

Jump to Comments

VIA Rail logo VIA Rail has announced that its wireless Internet service is available on most trains and stations in the Windsor-Quebec City corridor, in all classes. It’s not free, though; there are per-minute, daily and monthly billing options. Internet access on its long-distance trains is made problematic by the fact that the trains — the Canadian and Hudson Bay, for example — spend hours outside cellphone range, but they’re working on it for 2007-2008, using caching and an onboard server.
