Wi-fi for west country trains

First Great Western has announced a time scale for the implementation of free wi-fi on board its High Speed Train fleet and Night Riviera Sleeper services.  Work on fitting wi-fi will start in May 2014, with full completion due by the end of the year.  Wi-fi on the twice daily Night Riviera services will be available by June 2014.

First Great Western Managing Director Mark Hopwood said:

“We have trialled wi-fi on board our fleet of Class 180 trains, serving the north Cotswolds, and it has been very well received by customers.

“I am delighted that we are able to extend this free service, and within the next year all high speed and Sleeper fleet customers will be able to read their emails, browse the web, or simply catch up with friends while on the move.”

Wi-fi is currently available at a number of First Great Western stations through the public provider The Cloud. www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk  www.thecloud.net
