No, HEX had wifi in both Express Standard and Business First. I took the HEX yesterday and it wasn't working.

It was working for me on Sunday but not on Friday so it looks like it's rolled out on some trains and not others at the present time.

Seemed a decent speed, but only 15 minutes it's not much time to test it.

I caught the HEX last night and used the Wifi from terminal 5 all the way to Paddington and it worked! (Although it hasn't the last few time I caught it before that)

Yes it changed so you don't need to register with a fake email either.

1/2 on working wifi this weekend, let's see if it's getting spotty again or if this was a one-off...

It generally works these days. There is a new system coming in to play in a few weeks time (which I think has an optional App component which allows you to login without the T&C screen), but I've had no recent problems, a lot of my FT posts come from HEX. Best to login in as soon as you get on: from T5 it can get slow logging in after the T1 spot, and in the other direction it is in the tunnel section that everyone switches over since I think it's only 2G underground.
