We've been tracking plans to offer free Wi-Fi on Citytrain services in Brisbane ever since they were first announced in April 2009. It's taken a while, but proper trials for the service are now scheduled to begin in October.
Darren Pauli at Computerworld reports that while a final decision on which companies will build the network won't take place until August, a proper trial — involving both connecting security cameras to the wireless network and offering commuters free access — could be underway by October. That's good news, as we've already established that leeching Wi-Fi at central Brisbane stations doesn't work very well.
