York station gets free wifi

14 Jun 2008 by Mark Caswell

Up to ten million
travellers per year can now benefit from free wifi internet access at York
station, courtesy of National Express East Coast (NXEC).

York station is managed by NXEC,
which already provides complimentary wifi throughout all of its trains. The
free wifi zone covers the main concourse, including the waiting rooms and
cafes, and platforms 1 to 5. Passengers can access the service by logging on to
the network “nxecwifi_YORK”.

Says Steve Soards, station manager for NXEC at York: “A major advantage of choosing the
train over alternatives such as driving or flying is the ability to stay
connected to the internet throughout the journey. For business passengers our
wifi creates a productive mobile office, with the ability to send and receive
emails as well as to access the internet. Staying online throughout a journey
can mean the difference between clinching a deal or losing out.”
