The rail industry plans to roll out "high-speed mobile broadband"

This sounds quite good, especially as we are on the Thames link commuter belt

then I read further and its not till 2019.

sounds like spiel or a bit of a con!!! by then surely we will be on 5G or 6G, we wont need it! will we?

By 2019, 70% of train passengers should have access to the faster technology, the Department for Transport added.

Passengers may be able to watch streamed videos on their mobiles, for example, if the plan to raise data capacity per train 25-fold succeeds.

The programme will be industry funded.

"Today's announcement marks the beginning of the end of poor coverage on our railways," Mr McLoughlin said.

A Network Rail spokesman added: "As an industry, we recognise that the limited availability of mobile communications on Britain's rail network is not good enough.
