Great Northern’s new trains operating between Welwyn Garden City and King’s Cross now have Wi-Fi.
Internet is now available on the newly-introduced Class 387 trains, which have modern carriages that already boast power points at every pair of seats.
From later this year, Wi-Fi will be steadily introduced across other fleets on the Govia Thameslink Railway network, including Southern’s metro, Thameslink and other routes.
GTR engineering director Gerry McFadden said: “GTR was brought in to modernise the railway. That means bringing in new trains as well as new services, infrastructure and working practices to address the massive increase in passenger numbers on this, the UK’s most congested railway.
“One of the intended spin-offs is the introduction of on-board Wi-Fi.

“We’ve had it on our new Gatwick Express fleet for 10 months; now it’s been switched on across our new Great Northern trains.
“Coupled with power points at every pair of seats and air conditioning, we’re doing our best to give passengers a better journey.”
