Following a successful three-month competitive pilot and tender process First ScotRail has awarded Icomera the contract to provide on-train WiFi services on its Class 170 fleet of trains. The 59 trains, which operate on the busy Edinburgh-Glasgow route, will be fitted with the award-winning Icomera X6 to deliver high speed Internet access to all passengers onboard.
Icomera and the Swedish/Norwegian rail operator Linx launched the world's first commercial passenger WiFi service in September 2002. With its multi carrier, link aggregating capabilities it was a revolution in onboard passenger services.
