Why isn’t my connection working, despite the on board Wi-Fi signal being strong?

Our free Wi-Fi uses several 3G and 4G signals en route, so the quality of the internet connection will vary depending on where you are along our route and how many people are using the free Wi-Fi at any one time.

If you lose your connection, we’re probably just passing through an area with weak signal. If this happens, there’s no need to reconnect once the signal improves - you’ll be connected again automatically.

The good news is, watching content through VUER isn’t affected by the signal, so you can enjoy our range of TV programmes, magazines and more for your entire journey.


Will I have to pay?

Our onboard VUER content is completely free for your entire journey.


What content is available on VUER?

We’ve made some great content available on VUER, including top films, TV programmes, magazines, kids TV and documentaries.


How often will the content change?

We’re keeping track of what our passengers most enjoy watching and plan to update the content regularly.


The Wi-Fi isn’t working - will you refund my ticket?

We’re keeping our passengers connected by offering onboard Wi-Fi wherever we can along our routes. Due to the nature of the 3G and 4G mobile connections, speeds and connectivity will vary depending on where we are and how many people are online.

As we’ve made our VUER content free for all passengers, it’s not a service that’s included in our refund policy.


How secure is the network?

Although the network is an open network, we’ve implemented lots of safeguards, so it shouldn’t be possible for other users to get unauthorised access to your device. However we recommend that to keep your data safe, always make sure you’re connected to the right network and keep your firewall and anti-virus software up to date.
