Swiss Rail drops plan to put Wi-Fi in trains
There are better things to look at when on a train in Switzerland than a Mobile Phone screen.Far better to watch the scenery even if it happens to be a naked woman on the platform 'somewhere' in the Czech Republic.
As they said, someone has to pay, and the passengers don't wish to, nor does the Railway want to pay and jacking up ticket prices would not go down well either.
User Pays - as it should be - via the SIM Card in their phone.

But for somebody who commutes, riding the same train(s) every day, perhaps looking out the window isn't high on their priority list. I have ridden many trains in Europe and in Canada which have free wifi, and can understand the attraction, and can understand why people have an expectation that it will be free. If Switzerland is like lots of other European countries, free wifi is available everywhere. Why not on a train? (That's from a passenger's perspective, not necessarily mine)
