Vodafone and EE (owner of the Orange and T-Mobile networks) have signed a 10-year deal to offer mobile services on Eurostar services, with access to calls voice, texts and 3G internet to be introduced in March follow by 4G data this summer.
“This will enable passengers of both Le Shuttle and high-speed passenger trains to use their mobile phone or tablet device at any point of the journey through the Channel Tunnel,” said rail operators Eurotunnel.
“The quality of communication will be equivalent to a call made in Paris, London or anywhere above ground,” they added.
Around 20 million people take the 35-minute journey between the UK and France each year, either travelling by train or in vehicles loaded on to the Eurotunnel shuttle.
French customers have been able to use their mobiles in the southern tunnel running from France to England since an agreement brokered in preparation of the 2012 Olympics, but technical issues hampered the British effort.
EE’s Chief Technology Officer Fotis earpieces for motorola - http://Www.pevafersa.net/, Karonis said that the service would make help millions of customers “make the most of their journey time”:
“We’re proud to offer customers a superfast 4G service when they’re travelling from the UK into Europe. It’s another technology first for EE, and it’s one that will make a big difference to business workers and people going away on holiday.”
