Free Wi-Fi on Brittany Ferries

Free Wi-Fi on Brittany Ferries
Brittany Ferries is offering a new free wi-fi service onboard all its ships. It is the latest move by the ferry company to offer its customers state-of-the-art travel, allowing them to surf the Internet, send emails and stay in touch via social networks as they sail to or from France.

The wi-fi access allows wireless connectivity to the Internet for Brittany Ferries passengers via any wireless-enabled PC, tablet or smartphone. It is free to all customers, who each receive an individual access code printed on their boarding card when they check-in. The service can be accessed on all routes, 24 hours a day, throughout most public areas of each ship.
As Brittany Ferries’ ships sail many miles from land, the move has incurred a significant investment in satellite equipment and connection fees. However, unlike most cruise companies who charge for this service, Brittany Ferries is providing it free-of-charge.
Mike Bevens, Passenger Commercial Director, said: “Although many view holidays as a time to escape the rigours of work, many also want to remain in touch with friends and family by e-mail and social media. We know through talking to our customers that smartphones, tablets and laptops are becoming a crucial part of their lives, and they increasingly expect free wi-fi as part of a modern travel experience. Now they can log on, stay in touch, work or play, and put the final touches to their holiday plans as they cruise to France.”
