Spain to install free Wi-Fi in all commuter train stations

Wednesday 6 May 2015 | 15:35 CET | News
Spain's ministry of public works has announced that all stations forming part of the country's Cercanias commuter train network will offer free Wi-Fi within the next three years. The Cercanias rail network serves the country's 18 largest cities, including Madrid and Barcelona, and the creation of a free Wi-Fi service is part of a EUR 1.3 billion structural overhaul of the entire system. The first two stations to get free Wi-Fi will be Getafe in southern Madrid and Plaza De Cataluna in central Barcelona, starting in June.
