Huber+Suhner and ENGIE Ineo have signed a framework contract for the hardware which will deliver a passenger Wi-Fi network on SNCF’s high-speed TGV fleet.

Huber+Suhner will supply the passive components for the onboard Wi-Fi network for 140 trains – around half of the TGV fleet.

In December 2016, the first TGV train with Wi-Fi went into commercial service between Paris and Lyon. The framework contract includes an option for an additional 160 trains.

Didier Traube, managing director of INEO UTS, said: “As passenger numbers have risen over the years and modernisation of the TGV service has become increasingly important, the need to improve the passenger experience has also greatly increased.”
