Swiss Rail announced on Thursday that it would test free WiFi, named FreeSurf, on certain routes next year with a plan to extend the offer to all major routes from 2020, according to RTS.

Train passengers benefiting from the tests in 2019 will be those travelling on InterCity trains between Lausanne and St. Gallen, Geneva and Zurich, and Bienne and Basel.

Swiss Rail has not chosen Swisscom as its partner. So far only Salt and Sunrise are involved, however discussions are continuing with Swisscom.

Currently, connecting to the WiFi system requires a Swiss SIM. However, a solution is being sought to allow tourists to connect.

Those with unlimited Swiss data plans will gain nothing by connecting into the new WiFi. In addition, connection will be limited to mobile devices, excluding computers.
