Wifi access is being increased at 23 stations on First Great Western’s network.
WiFi provider, The Cloud, will be implementing the scheme.
Says First Great Western Station Contracts Manager, Robert Jackson, ‘Travellers now expect to be able to access the internet wherever they are, especially to pass the time during their commutes.
‘The popularity of WiFi – as seen in stations with existing connectivity – made the decision to expand and upgrade a very easy one to make.’
This deal with The Cloud enhances the WiFi network at those stations and extends it across many other busy stations, improving the service we provide to millions of passengers every year.
The upgrade planned for March 2012, will introduce WiFi to 13 stations across First Great Western routes, including Oxford, Ealing Broadway and Maidenhead.
A revamp of existing Cloud WiFi installations is also planned for 10 further stations including Bristol, Reading and Bath.
