The Tunisian national railway company (SNCFT) has announced that it is now providing internet access on board its long distance trains.
Passengers can now surf the web at a low cost from the comfort of their train cars.
This new service was made possible through a new venture financed by the National Solidarity Bank, a microcredit institution which provides young university graduates with low interest rate loans of up to 33,000 dinars to help them set up their own business ventures.
SNCFT transports more than 35 million passengers yearly, 5 million of them on long distance trains.
I think this is great and I hope we see more and more initiatives like this one popping up everywhere.
