Millions of station users are set to benefit from the launch of free Wi-Fi at London Bridge station.
The station, which has recently reopened following a £1 billion redevelopment, caters to more than 56 million people each year, and they are set to benefit from a free Wi-Fi service and content hub which offers a host of features including travel updates, downloadable magazines, movie trailers and a kids’ zone.
The free service has been introduced to improve the experience of passengers and people using the station.
London Bridge follows Euston as the second Network Rail-managed station to roll out the service.
David Biggs, managing director of Network Rail Property, said: “Our managed stations have already grown to become destinations in their own right, where people can meet, eat and travel. Now London Bridge and Euston stations are places where they can digitally connect too.
“The latest passenger survey results show that customers’ priorities for station improvements include Wi-Fi and we’ve seen enormous popularity with the service at Euston station since it launched in October 2016, with around 270,000 people now registered as users.”
