National Express Coaches Go Wi-Fi

Posted: 07th Mar, 2006 By: MarkJ
National Express’ coach-travelling passengers will, for the first time, be able to connect to the Internet while on the way to and home from work as part of a new FREE Wi-Fi trial with Telabria:

Customers boarding coaches on the 010 London to Cambridge route now have access to broadband Internet access on the move through their Wi-Fi enabled laptops, PDAs and other handheld devices. What’s more, from 6 March 2006 a new stop at Canary Wharf will be served on the 010 service enabling people to travel direct to the business district every day.

Each coach on the route will carry Telabria’s innovative mSystem MobilAP-3G, a multi-radio system that combines an 802.11b/g Wi-Fi access point with the 3G data. This ground-breaking technology means passengers on public transport systems will be able to connect to the Internet on the move at the highest speeds available wherever there is 3G network coverage.

Telabria believes that fully mobile, uninterrupted access to fast wireless internet connections will become as commonplace on public transportation as they currently are in coffee shops, airport lounges, hotels and pubs.

Ninety-five per cent of all notebooks now ship with integrated wireless support, and it is estimated that 3G data coverage between the leading network operators is available to over 60% of the UK population, with GPRS data coverage extending to over 95%.


Typically the trial itself is free, although the mSystem MobilAP-3G used by National Express is likely to be offered on a commercial basis further down the road, so to speak.
