Virgin Trains East Coast will introduce free wi-fi at Stations during 2016. On board wi-fi will continue to be made available free to first class customers from the start of the franchise and Virgin Trains East Coast’s current plans include a number of initiatives that will see the phased roll out of free wi-fi to an increasing number of passengers between 2015 and 2018. The exact timings will depend on a number of external factors including improvements to line side equipment.
