All 187 stations on the South Western Railway network now have Wi-Fi available.

The connection increase is a "significant improvement" with only five stations previously receiving internet connection.

It comes as part of a three-year SWR partnership with BT, which has already delivered 104 4G EE cell masts on SWR’s network and will soon see 31 new masts built.

BT is currently a year-and-a-half into the improvement programme, with current developments focused on ‘not spots’ – areas identified with limited or no mobile coverage.

Mark Hopwood, SWR Managing Director, said: “People expect to be able to connect and access information at the touch of a button, and most industries are having to respond to this demand and update their service accordingly.

“Our passengers are no exception to this rule, and we want to provide them with access to a fast and reliable connection when travelling with us.

“Working in partnership with BT we have significantly boosted the digital connectivity available on our trains and at our stations.

"The plans to build new masts demonstrates our ambition to go even further.”
