South West Trains in England Goes LIVE with FREE WiFi

Monday, Sep 15th, 2014 (3:07 pm) - Score 1,379

People travelling on the South West Trains service in England, specifically those who use the main line route from London Waterloo to Weymouth and Portsmouth, will from today be able to make use of a new on-board FREE wireless Internet (WiFi Hotspot) service, just so long as it’s one of the operators Class 444 Desiro electric trains.

Apparently more than 30,000 people travel along the line every weekday. The relevant coaches are predominantly white in colour and those with WiFi available will be clearly labelled on board. The service itself is being provided by Nomad Digital as part of a partnership with SWT and the Network Rail Alliance.

Arthur Pretorius, Customer Services Director for the SWT-NR Alliance, said:

Whether it’s working, catching up with the latest news or keeping in touch with friends, free WiFi on many of our Main Line trains will help our passengers to make more use of the time they spend on board our services.

We are constantly working to improve the service we offer to our passengers and are investing millions of pounds in our stations, trains and infrastructure to provide improved journeys. This latest investment will provide significant benefits to our customers and we’re confident will make a big difference to their journey with us.”

No doubt this will make life easier for commuters, many of which will have previously had to rely on patchy Mobile Broadband coverage that can easily be broken by tunnels or when passing through areas of generally poor reception.
