Free Wi-Fi is coming to every high-speed train by Universiade

The China Post

TAIPEI, Taiwan — Free iTaiwan wireless internet is now available on 80 percent of high-speed rail compartments.

While installation work and testing still needs to be done before Wi-Fi will be available on the remaining 20 percent, Taiwan High-Speed Rail Corp. said the service would be up and running on all 34 of its trains before the 2017 Taipei Universiade kicks off on Aug. 19. The company is also working to address weak signal strength in some compartments where the service is already being offered. The high-speed rail is the latest mass rapid transit system to offer free Wi-Fi, following in the footsteps of the Taipei, Kaohsiung and Taoyuan metros.
