Eurostar adds Nomad WiFi to new fleet of trains

Eurostar adds Nomad WiFi to new fleet of trains :18 September 2013 – Nomad Digital, the global leader in wireless connectivity solutions for the transportation sector, has been chosen to install the new Eurostar e320 fleet with on-board passenger Wi-Fi.

Contracted by Siemens to supply Wi-Fi systems on 10 e320 trains, Nomad’s technology will be installed on the new fleet ahead of delivery to Eurostar. Separately, in 2011, Nomad had been awarded a contract by Eurostar directly to supply Wi-Fi solutions on its existing fleet which is undergoing a major programme of refurbishments. Both contracts will see delivery of modern, high-speed passenger Wi-Fi across Eurostar’s entire fleet.

Nomad Digital was chosen after demonstrating its ability to provide a high-speed connection to the internet on board, whilst delivering a seamless switchover at international borders to offer a reliable high quality Wi-Fi service. Haydn Abbott, Nomad Digital’s Interim CEO, claims the e320 passenger Wi-Fi win is a credit to Nomad’s superior solution: “Siemens’ decision to award Nomad the contract to equip Eurostar’s e320 trains with Wi-Fi demonstrates the quality of the Nomad solution as well as the value of its client service. We are delighted and proud to be part of such a prestigious project.”

Nigel Broughton, Siemens contract manager, said: “We are pleased to be working with Nomad on this exciting and high profile project. We hope Eurostar passengers will enjoy the fast and reliable Wi-Fi solution that will be available on board.” The introduction of the new e320 trains is part of Eurostar’s £700million investment in its fleet. This includes the complete overhaul and refurbishment of the existing fleet as well as the purchase of 10 new e320 trains from Siemens.
