I'm wondering if there are power outlets on the SBB Zurich-Milan train.

The SBB page on the topic says:

"Depending on the route and train type, you can enjoy the following services during your journey:" Power sockets (1st class)

It doesn't even mention Wi-Fi.

So the question is: are there any power outlets and Wi-Fi hotspots on the Zurich-Milan train?

  • Looks much better now IMHO. – JoErNanO Feb 8 '15 at 13:30
  • Some of the trains actually have (or used to have) wifi, but it's pretty useless as it will only show you a local website with the timetables. – drat Feb 8 '15 at 13:53

https://www.sbb.ch/en/station-services/during-your-journey/our-trains/astoro.html says:

The Astoro fleet is used for international services on the north-south axis (Germany–Switzerland–Italy).

Sockets (Swiss + Int.)

Mobile signal amplifier

WLAN

This apparently https://company.sbb.ch/en/the-company/projects/mittelland-region-and-the-ticino/neat/rolling-stock-for-passenger-services.html has been the case since December 2016.

Trains from Zurich to Milan are serviced by a number of companies.

For routes that start with InterCity trains, Wi-Fi is offered in 1st class. Source

Routes using InterRegio have free Wi-Fi, RegioExpress trains may also have Wi-Fi, please confirm. Source

I don't know about EuroCity trains.

    But keep in mind that the majority of the time you will be in areas with almost no coverage. From Zug to Biasca you will get Edge and from time to time 3G (tested with Swisscom and Orange) but don't expect to be able to transfer a lot ... – Matteo Feb 8 '15 at 12:17
  • @Matteo True, I'll add that in. – QuyNguyen2013 Feb 8 '15 at 13:55
  • @Matteo Were you on a train with a booster? – QuyNguyen2013 Feb 8 '15 at 13:57
  • Hi I don't know (even if there is the sticker on the door I never saw any difference). I travelled daily Bern-Zurich and I travel Zurich-Lugano every month. On the Gotthard track don't expect to get a lot of connectivity (I had to try three times to load this page to answer you :-) – Matteo Feb 8 '15 at 15:15

    Those pages are about Intercity trains within Switzerland. Most trains to Italy use different rolling stock. – Relaxed Feb 8 '15 at 23:38
