EE customers travelling through the Channel Tunnel will soon be able to surf, browse and email at super-fast speeds after the network announced plans to bring its 4G service to the tunnel.
The UK mobile firm says it hopes to have services up and running by Summer 2014 and says the work will also allow its 2G and 3G customers to also get online and make calls.
“We’re proud to offer customers a superfast 4G service when they’re travelling from the UK into Europe,” said EE Chief Technology Officer Fotis Karonis.
“It’s another technology first for EE, and it’s one that will make a big difference to business workers and people going away on holiday.
“Being connected is such an important part of travelling now and this will be another route we’ve covered with 4G, making a huge difference to millions of customers who can now make the most of their journey time.”
