Queensland Rail has introduced a free Wi-Fi trial on its refurbished Tilt Train for passengers traveling on the rail network between Rockhampton, Gladstone, the Wide Bay and Brisbane.

The new look Tilt Train had a mechanical upgrade and internal refurbishment and the ‘mid-life overhaul’ created an opportunity to upgrade the train to enable Wi-Fi access on board, with the trial commencing this month. How refreshing, for anyone who has caught this train before and chewed data on Facebook or Spotify!

This is the first time they have offered Wi-Fi on the long distance Queensland Rail travel fleet and passengers will recognise a train offering the free Wi-Fi service via signage in the carriage.’

“We know our passengers on the Tilt Train enjoy having entertainment, as they travel up and down the southern Queensland coast, introducing the free Wi-Fi trial increases their options”, Mr Pitt said.

“The 200mb limit means everyone on the train can get a fair share and will enable passengers to catch-up with the latest news, browse their favorite websites like www.gladstonenews.com.au, or check emails. (yes we know you love reading local news)

Maybe not enough megabytes to watch a whole season of Game of Thrones (or Jane the Virgin if you are into chick tv like me) but it’s a great start to connectivity and FREE WIFI.

Now let’s work on getting NBN into the business center of Gladstone next!
