The Wi-Fi service is free for passengers who log in to the My SNCB platform.
The SNCB Wi-Fi-network is a public network. Bear in mind that data you send using our network can be intercepted. Your personal data is stored in a separate, extra-secure part of the network.
First, verify that you are connected to the SNCB network. Try disconnecting and reconnecting to the Wi-Fi network. If that doesn't work, there is probably a network disruption. Try again later. Disruptions are automatically detected by our network team, so they can be resolved quickly.

Wi-Fi is currently available in the following stations: Aalst, Antwerp-Berchem, Antwerp Central, Mons, Bruges, Brussels Central, Brussels-Luxembourg, Brussels Airport-Zaventem, Brussels-North, Brussels-Schuman, Brussels-South, Charleroi-Central, Denderleeuw, Tournai, Gembloux, Gent-Sint-Pieters, Halle, Hasselt, Kortrijk, Leuven, Liege-Guillemins, Mechelen, Namur, Ostend, Ottignies, St-Niklaas, Vilvoorde.

The service is available in station buildings, passageways, waiting areas and on national and international platforms.

This can happen for two reasons:

● You've used up your data allowance for today. You can continue to browse the internet but at a slower speed.

● Many users are active on the network simultaneously, thus decreasing the capacity per user.

It's possible that the signal is not strong enough. SNCB aims to improve any deficiencies in the future.

It's possible that there is a network disruption. Disruptions are automatically detected by our network team, but you can also let us know about the problem via:

● Tel. +32 (0)2 528.28.28

● Our contact form

● Our Twitter account @SNCB or Facebook page SNCB

● A member of the station staff

If your mobile device has a SIM card provided by a public mobile network operator, your device will automatically switch over to that mobile network. Please note: from that moment on, internet traffic will go through your mobile network operator and will be billed accordingly.

The SNCB network is called 'FreeWifi-NmbsSncb'. There could be various reasons why you cannot find the network:

● There is no Wi-Fi available in the station. This FAQ page provides a list of stations in which the network is available.
