A number of train operating companies have started to offer Wifi Internet access in some of their trains over the past year or two like for example in the U.K. or in Germany. Now Thalys, a private train company that links Paris with Brussels and Cologne has started their pilot service for Wifi Internet access on trains. From train to ground data is transmitted via Satellite, UMTS and GPRS. Another company that has understood how to make people take the train instead of the car or plane. Hopefully an example that spreads.
