Wi-Fi services are being launched at 30 railway stations operated by East Midlands Trains, it has been reported.

Commuters in Nottingham, Sheffield, Derby and Leicester and those using a host of other terminals will soon be able to use The Cloud's wireless broadband service.

The company's entire Meridian fleet has already been equipped with on-board Wi-Fi, meaning travellers can access the internet during their journey.

The latest development means many passengers will be able to enjoy Wi-Fi while waiting for their service to arrive.

Neil Micklethwaite, Commercial Director of East Midlands Trains, said with The Cloud in place, his firm is bringing new Wi-Fi areas into the mix.

"The Content Portal will be a particularly useful tool for customers as it provides a one-stop-shop of information, including London Underground travel updates – something that should be especially beneficial to those commuting in and out of the capital," he stated.

"This deal is all part of our £10 million investment project which aims to improve the customer experience at all of our stations. Adapting to the mobile boom by providing free Wi-Fi to our customers is a key element of this."
