The telecom’s president, Hsieh Chi-mao, said his company was conducting a trial run on some HSR carriages as part of an Airport MRT and HSR 4G/Wi-Fi network services project, adding that it would roll out across all trains in June at the earliest.

Hsieh said that while 4G Wi-Fi was already available on the Airport MRT system, Chunghwa Telecom was working closely with Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp. to test the Wi-Fi on HSR trains.
