Eurostar Trains Will Soon Have Wi-Fi Onboard

Eurostar

Frequent travelers commuting between London and Paris know that the best way to go is by the high-speed Eurostar train. Check-in is a breeze, the train ride is just over two hours, and your departure/arrival point is in a city-center location. (Forget the haul to/from the airport.) Added perks in Business Premier include fast-track boarding; a three-course meal, designed by culinary director Raymond Blanc, served directly at your seat; plus a veritable newsstand of magazines and newspapers for reading or catching up on world news.

Now we’ve learned of another amenity that will soon delight passengers traveling by Eurostar between England and the Continent. Rude Baguette reports that trains will be equipped with onboard Wi-Fi in 2014 as part of a 700 million euro refurbishment. Eurostar recently announced that a contract has been signed between Nomad Digital and Siemens to outfit the trains. Now that’s music to our ears. For more information, visit www.eurostar.com
