Wireless on the move

Ok, so by and large trains in the UK are too expensive. Frequently they don’t run on time, and quite often they’re filthy as well. (As a long-suffering First Great Western customer, I know these things all too well.)

But I’ve just encountered a glimmer of hope on the new National Express East Coast franchise. Not only is my train to Edinburgh clean and on time. It’s got free wireless, which I’m using to post this.

It works, it’s fast enough to do useful stuff with and … did I mention it’s free? Or at least included in the price of the ticket.

Ok, providing a decent internet connection is hardly one of their core objectives, but it’s nice that a train company in this country can get something right.
