From May 1 to September 15, train passengers that use the Bucharest-Constanta route have free Wi-Fi at their disposal in train carriages displaying “Orange Wi-Fi Zone” stickers, their access to high-speed internet not being conditioned by the mobile phone networks they use.
“Orange is bringing the fun on the journey to the sea, with free Wi-Fi on Sun Trains,” the operator announced in a press release.
Internet connection on CFR trains is based on the Orange Business Wi-Fi solution and allows high-speed internet access throughout the journey for hundreds of mobile devices simultaneously connected to the internet during the two-hour journey to the seaside.
Likewise, internet traffic content is verified in order to be safe including for children, but also to prevent risks that may affect the users’ devices.
Thus, Orange rounds off its portfolio of projects through which it offers mobile connectivity. In 2015, Orange implemented a project through which it offers free Wi-Fi to the users of public transportation in Cluj-Napoca, regardless of whether they are Orange clients or not. Since then, the service has expanded to other Romanian cities too, such as Timisoara and Caransebes.
