GNER trains have wireless

I’m travelling up to Newcastle from London for a meeting by train. Its a journey I’ve not done for years.

Cautious with my money, I’m travelling standard class. So I was delighted to see even these carriages have
– wireless internet access on board
– at seat power sockets for laptops/phones

How times have changed such that
– the trains are evidently listening to customer needs which helps in trying to compete against low cost airlines
– customers feel the need to be online much more. Are we far away from an “always on” expectation amongst the mass market (which the mobile phone has probably created anyway)
