Increased free Wi-Fi data allowance for passengers


We are very pleased to announce that our free on-train Wi-Fi data allowance for passengers has been increased from 75MB to 125MB on our long distance trains between Birmingham, Oxford and London. 

This increased data allowance also enables a research team from the University of the West of England, supported by the RSSB, to determine the best data allowance levels for on-train services. The findings of this research will then be shared with the wider rail industry.

With the line from London Marylebone into Oxford City Centre opening on Monday 12 December, this increased free data allowance is an added bonus for customers who will find it even easier to work or use the Wi-Fi for personal admin and leisure purposes along the route.

Our Commercial Director, Justin Baines said, “Free Wi-Fi has been available on our long distance trains for around six years allowing customers to be more productive and make better use of “travel time” during the working day. Raising the data allowance to 125MB enhances our offer and provides even more opportunity for passengers to get things done, whether this be finishing a presentation and checking email during the working day or ordering groceries on the home commute to claim back family time.”
