Some are happy with no train Wi-fi
Some people are easily pleased.
Some 18% of rail passengers polled said they were happy with Southeastern trains’ Wi-fi service – despite the fact that it doesn’t exist.
More than 50,000 rail users were questioned in The National Rail Passenger Survey, Transport Focus, over satisfaction levels for various aspects of train travel.
None of Southeastern’s trains have internet access, even though Kent passengers were promised by rail minister Paul Maynard last year they would be among those to benefit from an investment of nearly £50m.
“We are determined 90% of all trains will have access to Wi-fi by the end of 2018,” he said.
But now the train firm confirmed Wi-fi will not be available on any of its trains until the end of winter.
The overall satisfaction score for Wi-fi across all operators in Britain was just 30%.
