Free Wi-Fi in trains to raise ticket cost on 1 Ruble

Introducing Wi-Fi service in long-distance trains in Russia will cost passengers one Ruble, which will be added to ticket cost, says The Vedomosti. It is not the final decision though. The option that Wi-Fi fee won’t be included into ticket cost is also considered.

Trains will be equipped with the system linking repeaters of 2G, 3G mobile network and Wi-Fi access points with satellites by the end of 2012. Satellite connection will be used in the areas where there is no signal of mobile base stations. First of all deluxe trains will be equipped with the satellite connection.

The cost of equipping a train with systems of Internet access varies from 5 up to 7 million Rubles (about $167 000- 234 000). The Russian mobile operators Vympelcom (trademark Beeline),MTS and MegaFon may take part in the project.
