Customers at two rail stations in Essex now have access to free Wi-Fi.

Greater Anglia’s Harwich International and Dovercourt stations are the latest to benefit from the train operator’s scheme to introduce Wi-Fi at 100 stations in the region.

Andrew Goodrum, Greater Anglia’s customer service director, said: “Since taking over the franchise in February 2012, we have been focusing our efforts on improving customer service.

“Offering our customers free Wi-Fi is an important part of this, as we recognise that the internet is a vital part of people’s everyday lives.

“We are seeing a huge number of passengers using mobile devices and wanted to provide them with fast, reliable Wi-Fi so they can work, shop or browse easily.
