Eircom has revealed plans to extend its WiFiHub network to 70 Irish Rail and DART stations, with more to follow over the next few months. The move will bring the number of public WiFiHub hotspots around Ireland to 1,800.
It is understood that some 58 train stations and 12 DART stations have already had Eircom’s Wi-Fi service installed, including stations Heuston, Connolly, Cork, Limerick and Limerick Junction.
Regional stations including Sligo, Mallow, Gorey, Nenagh, Drogheda and Charleville have also been enabled.
First-time users need to register to use the service but once this is completed they can log on at any Eircom WiFiHub hotspot.
The move follows the recent switching on of free Wi-Fi by Bus Éireann at Busáras Dublin, Parnell Place Station Cork, Ceannt Station Galway, Colbert Station Limerick, Plunkett Station Waterford, Sligo Station, and Ballina Station.
