The decision whether to deploy Wi-Fi for regional railways will be made till the end of the year. All trains will get QR-codes to access online library, was announced by M24.ru with the reference to PR department of Central Uptown Railway.
The preferences will be focused on short genres, such as stories – which can be read in 30-40 minutes. The range of books will be updated once per quarter.
Experts consider that this idea is not perfect, as most passengers wouldn’t be able to access it due to the overcrowded atmosphere in a peak time – to scan the code from the poster in the wagon.
According to analysts, it is better to offer an opportunity to download new books per reasonable price.
