London-to-Scotland Trains Get FREE Wi-Fi

Commuters that travel on the London-to-Scotland east coast main line, which is currently owned by GNER, may be pleased to learn that they'll soon be getting FREE Wi-Fi (wireless) broadband Internet access on the journey.

National Express are currently in the process of acquiring GNER for 1.4bn and plans to take over related rail route's by the end of December this year. Typically GNER has been running Wi-Fi on its trains for awhile but it's only free to 'First CLASS' travellers.

The new owner has thus pledged to extend FREE Wi-Fi to passengers in standard class as well. The 2Mbps on-board link (shared between passengers) is delivered by a combination of satellite and mobile 3G/GPRS networks.
