Free WiFi for Liverpool Lime Street

Free, fast, unlimited WiFi for Liverpool Lime Street station

Free and unlimited Wifi, strong enough to support video calls and streaming, will now be available to passengers at Liverpool Lime Street station.

Network Rail already provide WiFi across a number of their London stations, and the free connection has been introduced since recent feedback from railway customers. The upgraded service uses the newest technology so commuters can connect multiple devices, without needing to create an account to login.

It’s certified as “friendly Wifi” meaning that it adheres to Government safe filtering standards for the public and is child friendly.

The decision has been made as the number in passengers is expected to spike again next week, when Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

Network Rail’s North West route director, Phil James, said “passengers have told us that to enhance and improve things for them and free WiFi was a must – so, we’ve provided it. I’d urge anyone to take advantage of the new reliable and secure service when travelling through the station.

“This is the first station in the North West with the free upgraded Wifi. Next up is Manchester Piccadilly.”

Shift station manager at Liverpool Lime Street station, Robbie Humphreys, said “it’s a great improvement for our passengers, it’s free to connect, you don’t need to enter any personal information, and it’s one of the fastest data connections you can get.”

“It’s part of our wider efforts to encourage passengers back to rail travel and we can assure people they can travel in confidence. The station team has worked really hard to keep passengers safe throughout the pandemic and we will continue to do so.”

19 of the nation’s biggest stations, managed by Network Rail, are set to be connected with the new WiFi service by the end of 2021.
