Apparently that 35 minute journey though the Channel Tunnel is a bit too long to stay without the internet, so to help EE has today announced that they will be building a 4G network inside of the tunnel itself, passing through the UK and France.
The service will be open by the end of the summer this year and will allow all EE customers who are signed up to a 4G plan and using a 4G-enabled phone to access the 4GEE network within both of the lines for the Eurotunnel shuttle as well as the car transport and the Eurostar train itself.
“We’re proud to offer customers a superfast 4G service when they’re travelling from the UK into Europe. 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,” said EE CTO Fotis Karonis.
“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.”
EE and Vodafone also recently announced that they will be added 2G and 3G mobile data services from March in the North Tunnel.
