Hardly groundbreaking but …

The other day a colleague mentioned SouthWestTrains had finally made good on their promise of free wifi, since he now had wifi on his train up from Bournemouth. This morning I turned on my phone’s tethering for my journey to town, but was excited to see something else pop up on the available networks list too.

SWT-Wifi

It’s probably a mixed blessing! The totally appalling Vodafone signal up the mainline from Southampton to Waterloo has at times been frustrating, but also regularly a great reason to go off the net. Conference calls cannot be held and I don’t even bother trying to answer inbound calls. I’d crack on with things that required me to single task. However, of course there are times when reliable internet access was sorely missed … though invariable not for work reasons.

Overall good free wifi access on the train will make a huge difference to my regular train experience. Probably should do some work now …
