Proportion of rolling stock with mobile radio signal boosters
% 42.3 46.6 51.4 4.8
In order to ensure that reception inside the train is just as good as it is outside, mobile network providers and SBB are using signal boosters in trains. In vehicles it is modernising, SBB will also be rolling out high-frequency windows that let mobile signals through.
Long-Distance Services fleet
% 76.7 77.0 79.5 2.5
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. Old rolling stock that is not used regularly or is soon to be scrapped will not be upgraded.
Regional Services fleet
% 11.4 19.6 26.2 6.6
By 2024 the regional fleet will be equipped with signal boosters or high-frequency windows that let mobile signals through. The latest multiple units such as the Regio double-deck trains already have them.
