Ofcom may finally be set to boost UK train Wi-Fi

New spectrum could enhance capacity and improve Wi-Fi connectivity

Ofcom has identified spectrum that it says could be used to deliver better on-board Wi-Fi and mobile coverage to the UK’s railway network.

Several train operators already offer on-board Wi-Fi but research suggests many passengers suffer from a poor experience.

Meanwhile, improving mobile coverage is challenging because cellular signals tend to bounce off train carriages rather than penetrate them.
