Super-fast Wi-Fi has launched at St Pancras railway station in London, giving commuters the opportunity to get online while they wait for trains.

WiFi Metropolis has introduced the new service at the terminus of the Channel Tunnel rail link, offering download speeds ten times those available in the average UK home.

The wireless broadband service is being rolled out during summer 2014 as part of a two-phase plan, and should be complete by September.

It offers 20 minutes' free Wi-Fi to consumers via their connected devices, in and around the terminus.

"The system will be able to host as many as 7,000 people all streaming a HD movie at the same time," according to the St Pancras website.

"That’s like 28 cinemas full of people watching the same film at the same time."

Back in January, it was announced that EE and Vodafone would be offering 4G services in the Channel Tunnel, boosting the connectivity available to rail passengers travelling to the continent.
