Virgin trains usually do but there is a charge for it.
"You'll find Wi-Fi available on all Virgin trains."
Not travelled on train in years (Possibly > 1 decade!)
Do they have wi-fi (Virgin west coast - pleb class seat )
Will my bluetooth 3G tethering setup that I used camping work ?
Or will I have to get myself a sudoku book?
I'll think I'll try my phone link 1st and then maybe go for the £5 for 60mins
fiver for an hour?
It's only free in 1st class. You have to pay for it elsewhere.
I bought a PAYG O2 mobile broadband dongle for use when I'm out and about. Costs me £2 for 24 hrs and so far I haven't found anywhere that it won't work.
I use my orange mobile broadband via 3G on virgin trains, works very well no problems at all!
This always used to be possible, but the train companies may have wised up a little and put a little extra security in place somehow. Simply sit in "pleb class" as you say, but as close to the first class carriages as possible.
I used to do this on FCC and could pick up both the chargeable, and the free systems
If you have a mobile that supports it, tether it to your laptop.
What mobile do you have?

Thanks for that ... I'll give it a go later.
So it's unlimited as long as you don't download more than 1GB. It's like saying I'm a millionaire so long as I don't spend more than my monthly income.you can get our Mobile Internet Add-On for just £5 a month it gives you unlimited Mobile Internet. .... If you exceed the 1GB fair use policy at any point then your excess use will be charged on a daily rate of 30p per day for any additional days. That daily rate is subject to a fair use policy of 25MB per day and any additional use beyond that will be charged at £2 per MB.
I have a fair usage policy with T-Mobile that potentially throttles my connection during the daytime if I go over 1GB.
