All aboard for wireless wonders...

I was checking "Wireless Wonders" in the search engines to see if my new blog was indexed. No luck yet. However, I did find that GNER trains in the UK now offer onboard WiFi coverage on their 80 Mallard trains. They call it "Wireless Wonders". What else?

To maintain constant coverage, they have two GSM receivers and one satellite receiver on the train. Obviously, if they're using GSM to connect, then WiFi inside the carriage is not going to be like using WiFi in the office, or home.....much, much, slower!

The GNER site says: "Connection speeds are a minimum of 56k and up to 512k in places."
