Make calls in comfort or relax in a quiet atmosphere
In an ICE you have the choice: you can make calls without the connection being lost in the mobile area. Or you can relax without being disturbed in the rest area.
Deutsche Bahn is renewing the old repeaters and expanding its seating capacity in the mobile phone area together with the four mobile phone networks T-Mobile, Vodafone, E-Plus and O2. Within three years all ICE trains will be fitted with new, performance-optimised repeaters. O2 customers can also use their phones without connections being lost.
We will optimise our rest zones for passengers wanting to relax in peace and quiet. These will then be found either in compartments, the ICE lounges (compartments behind the driver) or in entire coaches. In this area mobile phone calls, ring tones, listening to loud music (including with headphones) or other noisy activities are unwelcome.
Mobile phone area
On completion of this work almost 2/3 of the seats in both 1st Class and in 2nd Class will have an optimised mobile phone reception.
These areas can of course be explicitly reserved.
