More passengers travelling on East Midlands Trains services to and from the capital will now be able to access on-board wireless broadband.

Technology partner Nomad Digital has revealed that the entire 27-unit Meridian fleet, which operates on the London to Nottingham and London to Sheffield routes, is now equipped with Wi-Fi technology.

In addition, four of the 11 MKIII high-speed trains currently in commission have received Wi-Fi connections, with the broadband service set to be rolled out to the remainder over the next two months.

Gary Griffiths, Franchise Program Manager of East Midlands Trains, commented: "It has been a great team effort to complete the installation of the Meridians.

"We are very pleased with how the service has been received by our customers."

Nomad Digital has a five-year deal to provide technology services, including Wi-Fi, on board East Midlands Trains.

The Wi-Fi rollout commenced earlier this year, initially in the form of a pilot project to test rail passenger demand for broadband services.
