Tens of millions of pounds are being earmarked to speed up internet access on commuter trains across England and Wales. Passengers on services into Leeds and Sheffield are among those likely to benefit.

New wi-fi equipment will be fitted to trains across the country resulting in speedier connections. The service should be available within the next three to four years.
