Have your say

Free Wi-Fi will be introduced at Thetford, Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds’ train stations over the next few months.

Operator Greater Anglia has announced that, working with The Cloud, it will be commencing a project to introduce Wi-Fi at 100 stations.

A wireless internet connection, provided by The Cloud, will be available on Wi-Fi enabled devices for free, for one hour a day.

Greater Anglia’s customer service director, Andrew Goodrum, said: “Since taking over the franchise in February we have been focusing our efforts on improving customer service. Offering our customers free Wi-Fi is an important part of this as we recognise that the internet is a vital part of people’s everyday lives. We are seeing a huge number of passengers using mobile devices and wanted to provide them with a fast, reliable Wi-Fi so they can work, shop or browse easily.”

The Cloud build and operates Wi-Fi networks across the UK and Europe.
