Train operator Greater Anglia has announced plans to create wireless broadband hotspots at 100 stations in the east of England.

Powered by The Cloud, the free Wi-Fi hotspots will allow passengers to access the internet via their mobile devices while waiting for their train to arrive.

The service has already been introduced at Chelmsford station and is expected to be rolled out over the coming months.

Vince Russell, Managing Director at The Cloud, said that by rolling out free Wi-Fi, Greater Anglia is further improving the service provided to railway users.

"We have seen usage on our network increase at an unprecedented pace in the last two years, and it shows no sign of slowing down," he stated.

"Our unique user-base has doubled over the past six months showing there’s a real demand for Wi-Fi at busy high street locations and transport hubs around the UK."

Mr Russell said that in order to keep its customers satisfied, Greater Anglia needs "a fast and reliable internet connection".

He claimed The Cloud will provide this, ensuring each person passing through the stations can enjoy "the best journey possible".
