WiFi - give yourself some time back
Being on the road shouldn’t mean being out of touch. Or bored. Or behind.
With free 4G WiFi on board all of our buses, you can make the most of your journey and have a blast online without eating in to your data.
What buses currently offer free WiFi?
Kinchbus 2 | Kinchbus 5 | Kinchbus 9 | Kinchbus 11 | Kinchbus 12 | skylink Derby | skylink Nottingham | sprint
how does it work?
Just head to your connectivity settings on your device – or wait for the WiFi selection options to pop up. Look for the name of the brand you are using, tick you agree to our terms – and away you go. There’s no fuss or complicated forms to fill in.
get the most from our free WiFi
Even though our WiFi is completely free, it does have a daily cap. But don’t worry, it's more than enough to keep up to speed on social media, watch a few epic fail videos on YouTube or even, if you must, catch up with your work emails.
See our FAQs below for more help and advice with our caps.
What are the caps?
Every day you'll have 250MB of free WiFi data to use on each of our brands. So for example, if you get on a skylink Derby bus you'll have 250MB to use, if you then hopped on a sprint in the same day you'll have an additional 250MB of WiFi data. This will apply to any Kinchbus bus.
I've hit my cap, now what?
Don't worry, our caps reset at midnight every day so you'll be able to connect as normal the following day.
How can I avoid hitting the cap?
If you steam videos, make sure you set it to stream in a lower quality, on a mobile device you probably won't notice the difference in quality using 480p or 720p compared to HD but you're data allowence will go much further.
Avoid downloading or steaming high quality music.
Set apps to not auto download, on some devices they start by default updating over WiFi as soon as they join (you will still be notified when there is an update available).
Avoid having too many apps open, especially data eating ones. Sometimes they can use your data even in the background.
