    Hey there! They don't have WiFi onboard the AVE trains. At least not in third and second class and unfortunately I don't think they have in first class either. But there is tv onboard. The AVE trains are very comfortable. The duration of the journey is about 2-3 hours. I think you can do it though it would be nice with WiFi. Have a nice trip and good luck! Enjoy your stay in Spain!

    I thought I read somewhere on Google that the AVE trains did have WIFI. I know I saw that all the seats have electrical sockets for laptops. Anyway, thanks a lot for your help. Much appreciated.

    Well I also read about the AVE trains on internet but I didn't found anything about WiFi. I also asked my dad in Spain (he has traveled a lot between Malaga and Madrid with train) and he said they don't have. Many trains have electrical sockets for phone charging or what ever but it doesn't always mean that they have WiFi. I am sorry man, hopefully I'm wrong but I don't think so.. I wish you though a pleasent journey. Enjoy the views from the train as it rushes out in 300 km/h.

    I have no recollection of WiFi on the AVEs and it will be some time before I need a journey.
    There is no mention on the relevant page here under On Board Services - renfe.com/EN/viajeros/larga_...

    Sadly, there is no wi-fi in the AVE trains (yet). And knowing RENFE, I doubt it will be for free when they decide to implement it.

    Regarding electrical sockets, it depends on the train model, some only have electrical sockets in all the seats in business class, and only in some seats in tourist class. Get your batteries charged before your trip and download a good film to your laptop :-)
