Broadband upgrade for East Midlands Trains
East Midlands Trains passengers are set to benefit from a broadband upgrade.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."
