In 2016, the government announced that all train operators bidding on future franchises and direct contracts in England and Wales would have to include free Wi-Fi as part of their pitches. That's why you have "free", but the govemment requirement was slow not fast. No one wants you to go fast in case you do too much work on the trains. Credit to the government, not to the rail companies,
I have, I got it a couple of times. But not recently
I think you need to to subscribe to newsletters to get code ?
If they sent the code, last 3 trips no code.
Previously when you had to enter a code it was free for the whole of the journey and it would stay connected. However when I travelled with them last weekend (on both journeys) it would automatically sign me out of the wi-fi every time the train stopped at a station (annoyed) If I didn't see the notification asking me to sign in again my phone would automatically switch to using my precious mobile data (mad) So much for an improvement. It worked far better before when you had to enter the code from your booking confirmation.
