Try GNER's WiFi on the train for free


GNER reckons that all its East Coast trains will be equipped for WiFi by August this year, so to celebrate, it’s offering the service free of charge this summer.

As an attempt to get punters used to using it, from Monday 5th June to Monday 31st July, GNER is giving Standard Class passengers the chance to trial the service with a one-off unlimited 24-hour session free of charge. The standard rate will be £9.95. If you travel first class, it’s not an issue, as WiFi access comes free for those in the better seats. To use it, you just have to launch your web browser which will automatically detect the GNER landing page. After that, just follow the instructions for your freebie.

The company is also running a competition for passengers to win £1,000 worth of PCWorld vouchers in a prize draw – so if you’ve got a WiFi enabled PC, you might be able to win one!
