Better mobile coverage on trains please!
The network coverage on train journeys can be pretty grim. And so, a train operator is teaming up with a mobile phone company to improve coverage for passengers. If this works, surely it'll be rolled out nationally?
East Midlands Trains is working with Vodafone to improve the mobile phone signal on its carriages and equipment is being installed on 27 Meridian trains that operate on the Midland Main Line (the route between Sheffield and London) which will hopefully strengthen and improve the mobile phone signal.
The first phase of the project has seen East Midlands Trains engineers installing mobile phone signal boosters to six of its seven-carriage Meridian trains.
Managing director David Horne said the company's entire Meridian fleet would be enhanced early next year.
