Mobile broadband news

A UK company has been busy installing wireless broadband on buses in Scandinavia.

Passengers travelling on buses from Arriva Denmark's fleet will be able to enjoy wireless connectivity to surf the net and send emails after the Multimesh mobile broadband gateway was provided in 23 vehicles.

The system has been developed by UK-based Meshhopper Wireless, a developer and operator of mobile and static wireless access solutions.

"We believe that the introduction of broadband services on these two bus lines in Copenhagen today will enhance the passenger experience and provide a useful and productive way for our customers to spend their journey time," said chief executive Arriva Scandinavia Johnny Hansen.

He added: "If more people decide to take the bus and leave their cars at home we can make a serious contribution to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions."

In-vehicle systems such as vehicle location, CCTV and ticketing are also aided by the Ethernet connectivity provided by the Multimesh gateway.
