Passengers at the Flinders Street railway station in Melbourne will soon be able to access free internet connection.

Passengers waiting to catch a train at Flinders Street railway station in Melbourne will soon be able to log on to the internet for free as Wi-Fi is to be fitted at the facility.

The system is being rolled out for a trial period and people will be able to surf the web for free for 15 minutes after they have watched a short advert.

In order to log in people need to provide their age and gender and will be shown an appropriate ad, with the option of watch more commercial and receive more time online.

GoConnect, the company behind the new service, has estimated as many as 15 million commuters will be using the service each month once it is up to full use.

Many people could be taking the train or flights to Melbourne later in the year in order to see Lady Gaga performing a concert in the city.
