Made for browsing 

Our on-board WiFi is perfect for browsing the internet and checking social media, but because there are lots of people using it at once, it’s not really made for streaming audio or video. If you’re looking for on-board entertainment, be sure to check out Avanti Media.

Avanti Media

From box-office hits to box set favourites, as well as games, daily newspapers and more, our on-board entertainment service streams it all directly to your device. Download the Avanti Media app.

Track my Train

We’ve launched a new onboard service which lets you follow the live progress of the train you’re on. Whether you’re whizzing past Watford, tilting past Tamworth or just pulling up to Preston – you’ll know exactly where you are during your journey.

Track My Train is available onboard after logging on to our free WiFi. It keeps tabs on the live updates of your journey and not only tells you where you are, but when you can expect to reach your destination with up-to-date times including any disruption.


Having some trouble? If your internet is slow, or you’re having difficulty getting online, just ask a member of our on-board staff for help or call our service desk on 0345 528 0253.

Station WiFi 

You can also get online at our stations, absolutely free. Station WiFi is available at the following stations:
