The Internet connection is made through a tracking antenna fixed to the roof of one of the carriages. The innovative satellite-tracking antenna design includes specially developed software that maintains a continuous two-way link with the host satellite. The connection is continuous even though the satellite is at an altitude of 36 000 km and the train is travelling at 300 km/h, an impressive technological achievement.
