Travel green with SWR

Free Wi-Fi

Whether you’re at a train station or on board a train, our free Wi-Fi service will help you catch-up on emails and work before you head into the office. We’re also the first train company to be introducing rail-5G on board Wi-Fi to our network bringing even better connectivity.
