National Express deploy Wi-Fi on Stansted to London coaches
Thursday 09 June 2011 09:47:51 by John Hunt

National Express have installed free Wi-Fi on Stansted Airport Coach services which run between the airport and London. Using the Icomera Moovbox, travellers will be able to gain access to the Internet through an HSPA link installed on the coaches which connects with T-Mobile. This offers a 7.2Mbps link to be shared between passengers. Whilst not astoundingly fast, it will be available for free which may tempt people away from their own mobile Internet devices. National Express has been rolling out Wi-Fi across its most busiest coach routes.

"The installation of WiFi on our Stansted airport coaches ensures that people stay connected with friends, family and colleagues throughout their journey. Using mobile technology will be an increasingly important part of what we offer our customers."

Andrew Cleaves, (Managing Director) National Express UK Coach

Stanstead Express train services, also operated by National Express, announced earlier this year that they were also being enabled with Wi-Fi, so it makes sense for competing routes to also offer the same. Icomera are specialists in mobile Wi-Fi and serve more than 15 million Wi-Fi users in over 20 countries on transportation.

Typical trick, say it's free and you only get a few minutes before you have to pay, East Coast railway does that as well.

So when you go in a GPRS zone there will be a collective 'sigh' on the bus?
