New Eurostar e320 Train Fleet to Get Faster WiFi Internet Access

Wednesday, Sep 18th, 2013 (1:34 pm) - Score 914

Commuters travelling on the Channel Tunnel route could soon benefit from even faster wireless Internet access, alongside a seamless switchover at international borders, after Nomad Digital announced that its connectivity solutions would also be installed on 10 of their latest e320 trains.

The 320 series, which first surfaced at the end of 2010, can travel at speeds of up to 200mph (Miles per Hour) on parts of the track that support such performance and are also able to negotiate different signalling equipment and power supplies between countries (i.e. fewer changeover stops required).

Nigel Broughton, Siemens Contract Manager for Eurostar, said:

We are pleased to be working with Nomad on this exciting and high profile project. We hope Eurostar passengers will enjoy the fast and reliable Wi-Fi solution that will be available on board.”

It should be said that Nomad Digital already holds the contract to supply WiFi solutions on Eurostars existing fleet, which is currently undergoing a major £700 million programme of refurbishments. Meanwhile Siemens are responsible for building the ten new e320’s.
