The staff already use the plug sockets just outside the coffee brewing room (pantry??) at the end of the sleeper carriages.

Dear colleagues,
We have today confirmed a timescale for the implementation of free WiFi on board all 53 High Speed Trains and two Night Riviera sleeper trains.

Following an agreement with provider Nomad Digital, work to fit WiFi on High Speed Trains will start in May 2014 and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. WiFi on sleeper trains will be available by June 2014.

WiFi has been trialled on Class 180 trains serving the North Cotswolds and it is already available at a number of stations through public provider The Cloud.

The expansion of free WiFi on HST (High Speed Train) services was just one of a series of customer improvements we agreed as part of the new franchise. It forms only a part of our agenda for improving the services we provide to our customers and the communities we serve.

Managing Director
