|WiFi Now Available at Local Overground Stations|
Free 60 minute acccess at each station each day
London Overground passengers can now be WiFi-connected to 50 stations, including Shepherd's Bush, Kensington Olympia, Imperial Wharf and Willesden Junction.
Connections to the stations began on February 15, and the final final seven stations in London's orbital rail network will be covered by the end of June.
The service, from Wi-Fi provider The Cloud, will allow passengers to use their mobile devices to browse the internet, use social networks and get free, real-time travel information from Transport for London.
Access is free for the first 60 minutes every 24 hours at each station.
Peter Austin, Managing Director of London Overground Rail Operations Limited, which delivers London Overground services on behalf of Transport for London (TfL) and has signed the contract with The Cloud, says: 'We are always looking for ways to make the London Overground even more convenient than it already is and believe the introduction of free WiFi can only improve and enhance our passenger journeys."
Howard Smith, Chief Rail Operating Officer for TfL London Rail, which manages the London Overground service, says:
Passengers can access 60 minutes' free internet access each day, at each station, through a one-time registration process available at all 57 London Overground-operated sites.
WiFi is also available at over 100 tube stations across London including Hammersmith. For more information, including a map of WiFi enabled stations, visit TfL's Station WiFi.
