If you’re living in Scotland you might be interested to learn that ScotRail has announced their plans to deploy free WiFi on all 59 of ScotRail’s “class 170” trains, which operates in most Scottish cities as well as in the Fife and Sterling areas. This isn’t completely news as four class 170 trains have already been fitted with WiFi a few months ago as a trial, but we guess the concept was welcomed by passengers which could explain their plans to roll out free WiFi en masse. ScotRail plans to deploy the free WiFi slowly starting in March 2013 where five or six trains will have free WiFi installed every month, and they will also be installed during planned weekend maintenance so as to avoid any unnecessary delays, especially during rush hour period. This sounds like a pretty good idea, especially for passengers who experience the frustration when travelling underground that cellphone reception, let alone data coverage, is less than stellar.
