Passengers at 50 London Overground stations can now take advantage of free wireless broadband connectivity, it has been announced.

Transport for London has agreed a deal with public Wi-Fi provider The Cloud to offer 60 minutes' free internet access per day.

Consumers will also be able to access travel news and information free of charge whenever they are logged on.

Another seven stations are set to be added to the Wi-Fi network by the end of June.

Vince Russell, Managing Director at The Cloud, described London Overground stations as "a hive of activity" for people travelling in and out of the capital.

"This is especially true of workers commuting into the city. For these people, the ability to check emails or perhaps access work documents on the go is vital," he stated.

"Relying on 3G or 4G connection in locations where network traffic comes in peaks means that passengers are sometimes left frustrated at slow connection times during busier periods."

Mr Russell claimed his firm offers a fast, reliable internet connection to people as they wait for their trains.
