Free WiFi is coming to two stations on the First Capital Connect (FCC) rail network.
The WiFi is being rolled out as part of a £2 million-plus investment the company is making in service improvements over the next six months to mark its eighth anniversary.
Stevenage and Hitchin railway stations will benefit from the scheme alongside various other station in Hertfordshire.
FCC Managing Director David Statham said: “This is all about giving people better value for money. Free WiFi at our key stations turns downtime into productive time for our busy passengers giving fast access to the entire net and features such as our mobile website and new mobile ticketing app.
“This £2 million-plus investment will also give passengers cleaner trains, improved customer assistance, further measures to prevent graffiti and improvements to stations along the route.

Other ongoing improvements funded by the £2 million-plus investment over the next six months includes replacing canopies at Gordon Hill introducing lifts at Hitchin, Letchworth GC and Stevenage.
