    Wi-Fi Access Expand Onboard Key Train Services

    The expansion of wi-fi services onboard key train services and at stations is set to increase the number of people opting to work on the go. First Capital Connect (FCC) recently announced that it plans to provide free wi-fi at West Hampstead, St Pancras International and Finsbury Park stations this summer as part of an ongoing investment programme.

    The company is currently spending around £2 million to provide wi-fi access at 17 different stations over the next six months, as well as improving facilities at key locations across its train network. FCC managing director David Statham explained: “This is all about giving people better value for money. Free wi-fi at our key stations turns downtime into productive time for our busy passengers giving fast access to the entire net and features such as our mobile website and new mobile ticketing app.”

    London Underground Has Seen Increased Wi-Fi Users

    London Underground has also seen an increase in wi-fi users in recent months as more people opt to check their email and surf the web while commuting. The service provided by Virgin Media covers 137 stations across the tube network and at the end of April around 800,000 devices were registered for the service.

    Apple iOS devices were the most popular way of accessing services and accounted for 65 per cent of the total traffic, compared to 30 per cent for Android. Virgin Media has confirmed that it will continue to expand its underground wi-fi network as demand increases from users.

  • Joe Lathan, director of broadband at Virgin Media, said “Virgin Media’s wi-fi on the London Underground has been a huge success with Londoners and visitors alike so we’re delighted to be connecting even more people in more places.” The London Underground service is free for Virgin Media customers and subscribers to the mobile operators EE, Vodafone and O2.

    A recent survey by ClickSoftware Technologies estimated the number of mobile workers across the globe will reach 1.3 billion by 2015 but highlighted that many firms may not yet be ready for this developing trend.
