Rail passengers travelling between London and the continent will soon be able to take advantage of more advanced broadband services, it has been reported.

NOMAD Digital has linked up with Eurostar to provide onboard wireless broadband services on trains using the Channel Tunnel.

Wi-Fi should be available to passengers by 2013, as part of Eurostar's three-year fleet upgrade.

Nick Mercer, Commercial Director of Eurostar, said the firm was "very pleased" to be working with NOMAD.

He expressed confidence that the planned Wi-Fi and infotainment solutions will "significantly enhance" the onboard travel experience.

Mr Mercer said the company would be looking to deliver a high quality broadband service to all Eurostar passengers.

"In a world of on-rail competition providing the optimal digital experience will be key to our success," he stated.

Earlier this year, it was reported that East Midlands Trains had equipped all 27 Meridian trains with onboard wireless broadband.
