High Speed Broadband Trains – More Questions Than Answers
It was recently announced that high speed mobile broadband was being introduced by some train companies and the International Data Corporation (IDC) is now raising queries about the introduction of this.
It has stated that this will fail to solve all of the problems and that there are more questions than answers. IDC’s, John Delaney has welcomed the proposed improvements but he considers that Network Rail’s suggestions do not solve the current problem. He stated that there is also a requirement for high-speed radio access network and he questions the terms on wich this would be provided and by whom.
He is quoted as saying “Will passengers be able to use better broadband on trains as part of their regular mobile data subscription or will they have to pay an extra fee for it? If they have to pay extra how will competition between on-train broadband service providers be ensured?”.
He ended with a warning that these issues need to be resolved before the proposed improvement can be made.
