Proportion of rolling stock with mobile radio signal boosters
% 42.3 46.6 4.3
Long-Distance Services fleet
% 76.7 77.0 0.2
As a basic principle, all Long-Distance Services rolling stock provided for regular deployment is equipped with signal boosters. The Astoro fleet is an exception to this and will be upgraded accordingly over the coming months and years. It is not possible to upgrade any driving trailers due to electrical engineering constraints, while old rolling stock that is not used regularly or is soon to be scrapped will not be upgraded either.
Regional Services fleet
% 11.4 19.6 8.1
The regional fleet will be equipped with signal boosters by 2022; the latest multiple units such as the Regio double-deck trains already have them. FLIRT trains will not be upgraded as no noticeable improvement can be achieved in these trains with the current signal boosters.
