eircom extends WiFi Hub network
DART and Irish Rail commuters to benefit from wider access to free wireless broadband from eircom
eircom is planning to expand on its network of WiFiHub hotspots nationwide, by bringing free WiFi access to seventy rail travel stations across Ireland.
The scheme is expected to encompass approximately fifty-eight Irish Rail stations and twelve DART stations; the necessary service has already been installed in the targeted locations.
Amongst the DART stations which will be benefiting from eircom’s WiFiHub service are Connolly, Cork, Heuston, Limerick and Limerick Junction.
Anybody who is using this service for the first time will need to complete a registration process, which will allow them to log on to any of eircom’s WiFiHub hotspots across the country in the future.
eircom is also providing a free WiFiHub app to its customers; this is available for both iPad and Android systems, and can be obtained from the Apple and Android stores depending on format.
eircom is not the first company to branch out into this area: Bus Éireann has also recently provided free WiFi at several stations.
