From June 26th, Spanish company Gomex will be testing the free wifi network it certain stations across Paris.

A spokesman for the RATP, the Parisian transport company, said in a statement: “The company wishes to offer the best connectivity to its clients. To this end, a number of tests are to be carried out, including tests for wifi.”
