  • "Wifi not working all the time "    
    Hi I am foreign and have been going on business trip from Milan to Florence at first class. Firstly, I went to train station straightly from airport so I did not have phone number in Italy so I could not register an account to get wifi account in train. Secondly, one passenger in my coach gave to me his account to get in wifi, but even have account, the wifi did not work all all and I could not go to internet. I was disappointed about that because I need go to internet to check up something. You should fix this problem. Best regards Linh Nguyen

    Wifi was supposed to be free. However, once on board, i had to pay 1 Euro for it.

This was very inconvenient.    Value for money  Convenience
