Thus, high-speed trains will replace these smoking rooms with areas for video conferencing . These cars will have higher capacity WiFi connectivity to support these meetings at speeds of more than 300 kilometers per hour and will be equipped with other facilities, such as mice, free portable chargers and pads.

Although Wi-Fi connectivity on these high-speed trains is not new, the company recognizes that the pandemic has made videoconferencing meetings more frequent and that its trains must be prepared so that business travelers can make these calls comfortably. .

In addition, the company asks that it be accepted that in this type of wagons there are noises such as that produced when typing on a computer or phone calls.

S-Work wagons

The company has remodeled these wagons and has dubbed them " S-Work vehicle ". The WiFi connection they offer is twice the speed of their conventional service. It also offers a privacy screen for laptops. Some trains will even have specific cabins to be able to hold these video meetings in a more private way.

At the moment, this type of wagons will only be available on a couple of routes and on one type of train, the N700S, whose speed reaches 300 kilometers per hour. In addition, it will be necessary to reserve these seats if you want to enjoy these spaces to work.
