Train operator GNER is to offer Wi-Fi access on all its trains by this August after experiencing strong demand for the service.

So far, GNER offers Wi-Fi on 21 of its 41 trains, and had planned to equip them all with high-speed internet connectivity by May 2007.

The company said it had now brought this timetable forward in response to customer demand.

GNER, which runs the train service along the UK’s east coast, offers Wi-Fi for free to all its first class passengers; other passengers pay for it.

The service, which is marketed to both business users and consumers, costs between £2.95 and £9.95 for half an hour to two hours.

Virgin Trains, which runs the west coast line and cross-country services, has been testing Wi-Fi on trains, but hasn’t so far launched a full commercial service.
