First-class passengers on selected InterCity (IC) trains between Bratislava and Košice can now get wireless internet access after the state-owned rail passenger operator ZSSK began a trial operation of onboard WiFi, the TASR newswire reported, citing ZSSK communications director Alexander Buzinkay.

Over the next three months, ZSSK will test WiFi on the Gerlach IC train, which runs from Bratislava to Košice each evening, and runs from Košice to Bratislava early every morning. "We will test the quality of the signal, volume of transferred data and inquire about how content people are with it," Buzinkay said.

"Our goal is to introduce wireless internet connections gradually in all first-class coaches on IC trains," said ZSSK general director Pavel Kravec.
