Online en route.

SBB and the mobile telecommunications providers are using modern signal amplifiers to ensure better reception for passengers on the train. The specially equipped coaches are indicated by stickers.

Stickers indicating better mobile reception.

All long-distance trains will be fitted with 3G/4G signal amplifiers by the end of 2014. These direct the mobile phone signal into the coach from outside. Switzerland has the most advanced system in Europe, with customers already surfing via 4G/LTE on more and more routes.

Passengers wanting to use WiFi on the train can use their smartphone as a personal hotspot and go online with their laptop or tablet computer.
