Tfl Expand FREE Wireless Internet to 50 London Overground Train Stations

Monday, Feb 18th, 2013 (5:27 pm) - Score 715

Transport for London (Tfl) has announced that passengers at 50 London Overground stations can now access The Cloud’s (BSkyB) free wireless internet (wifi) service and the final seven stations are due to be enabled by the end of June 2013.

The new service was first announced in March 2012 (here) and began to go live last Friday. Passengers can expect to have 60 minutes free internet access each day, at each station, through a one-time registration process. TfL travel news and information will remain free at all times the user is logged on.

Vince Russell, Managing Director at The Cloud, said:

London Overground stations are a hive of activity for people travelling in and out of London. This is especially true of workers commuting into the city. For these people, the ability to check emails or perhaps access work documents on the go is vital.

Relying on 3G or 4G connection in locations where network traffic comes in peaks means that passengers are sometimes left frustrated at slow connection times during busier periods. We’re delighted to be working with London Overground to provide this service which will offer a fast, reliable internet connection to people as they wait for their trains.”

After this 60-minute period commuters will be offered the following WiFi charges if they wish to continue (hopefully nobody will have to wait that long for a train but sadly it does happen):

  • £2.99 for 30 minutes
  • £4.50 for 1 hour
  • £9.99 for 24 hours
  • £11.99 for 7 days
