Virgin launches wifi on West Coast Main Line services

29 Apr 2009 by BusinessTraveller

Virgin Trains has launched a wifi internet service on its Pendolino trains plying the West Coast Main Line route, with its Super Voyager trains also due to be wifi-enabled by mid-summer.

The rail operator has equipped its 52 Pendolino trains with T-Mobile wifi hotspots, with a further 21 Super Voyager trains also due to be fitted out. The service will be free to first class passengers, while those in standard carriages can either pay on-the-spot for hotspot passes, or access the service via their pay-monthly plans, which include unlimited hotspot access.

T-Mobile has partnered with Nomad Digital to provide the service, having previously worked with the mobility networks provider on the wifi internet provision onboard the Heathrow Express.
