Government promise of fast, cheap Wi-Fi on trains goes off the rails
Despite pre-election pledge, standard specification is only 1 megabit per second with many firms failing to offer free access
Train companies will only have to provide slow free Wi-Fi for customers despite a government pledge to introduce “fast, cheap internet connections” across the rail network.
Before the general election, the government announced that all train operators bidding on future franchises and direct contracts in England and Wales would have to include free Wi-Fi as part of their pitches.
