Broadband upgrade for East Midlands Trains
Passengers using East Midlands Trains to travel to and from the capital will now be able to access significantly better internet connections than before, thanks to a broadband upgrade.

Currently, there are many so-called broadband blackspots on the route between the East Midlands and London, meaning commuters can be cut off from completing important online tasks during their journeys.

However, £200,000 is being invested in upgrading the trains' internet access, which should lead to an improved service for travellers.

Web users will be charged £4 for three hours of Wi-Fi under the new scheme, while day trippers will be able to pay £6 - £1.50 less than before - to get online.

Speaking to local publication the Lincolnite, Customer Service and Commercial Director of East Midlands Trains Neil Micklethwaite commented: "This £200,000 investment ensures our passengers can continue to enjoy the latest technology, including 4G, providing a better and more reliable Wi-Fi on our London service."
