Passengers using Southeastern services will be able to use WIFI on their journeys following a £78m investment scheme.

From today, March 6, Southeastern will be rolling out the system on its fleet, including its High Speed service.

Every train is expected to have been fitted by June, with two-third already set up with the service.

Mark Johnson, engineering director said: “We’re thrilled to provide this free WiFi for our passengers. We know that this is what they’ve been asking for, so our engineers have worked day and night to install the system”.

According to a spokesman, to access the wifi passengers should: "Look for ‘Southeastern_WiFi’ in your available networks.

"There is no need to provide an email address. It will enable email without large attachments, surfing the internet, connectivity for smartphones and tablets and on-train stored content such as basic travel and timetable information."

Teams have been working at Slade Green, Ashford and Ramsgate to kit the trains out with the with the network in the franchises' biggest engineering project.
