David Cameron announces arrival of free Wi-Fi on trains from 2017
Prime minister pledges £50m to four train operators for wireless connectivity, funded by fines on Network Rail for tardiness
David Cameron has announced the roll-out of free Wi-Fi on trains from 2017.
Responding to a question from Maria Miller, the former culture secretary, who said passengers were frustrated by poor Wi-Fi on rail services, Cameron told MPs in the Commons that it was “vital for businesses and for individuals to be able to access Wi-Fi and do their work and all other contact while they are on trains”.
