St Pancras train get wi-fi

EAST MIDLANDS TRAINS, which holds the franchise from London’s Eurostar station St Pancras to Nottingham, Derby and Sheffield and also calls at Luton Parkway (for the airport), has started to install wi-fi internet on its services.  First Class passengers will benefit from complimentary access to the service, whilst other passengers will need to pay a small charge.  The train operator already provides a free internet service at Chesterfield and Sheffield stations and at its First Class Lounges at Derby, Leicester, Nottingham and London St Pancras.  The facility is currently being piloted on three trains, with the roll out to all units completed by the end of the year.  Initially all passengers will receive the service on a gratis basis but from 5 September for Standard Class it will be £4 per journey (up to 3 hours) or £7.50 a day. www.eastmidlandstrains.co.uk
