East Midland Trains to get Vodafone signal boost

Vodafone Logo

It would appear that Vodafone are teaming up with East Midlands Trains in a bid to give commuters on the rail network the best mobile connection possible. Travelers to London are set to get a signal boost which is to be installed into 27 trains by early next year.

The operator hopes to complete the project, which will see equipment designed to boost mobile signal installed on 27 trains, by early 2013.

East Midlands Trains managing director David Horne said: “Our engineers have worked in partnership with Vodafone to install these boosters, which strengthen mobile phone signals, ensuring a stronger and more constant reception.

“Already, all of our trains to London have on-board Wi-Fi and by improving mobile phone signals this helps to enhance the customer experience and allow travellers to work even more efficiently or stay in touch with family, friends or colleagues whilst on the move.”

Vodafone UK enterprise commercial marketing director Peter Boucher said: “Our customers have told us that coverage on trains ranks very high on their list. Now they can keep up to date on what’s most important to them – friends, family and their online lives even on the daily commute or trip into town.

“Equally, business customers are finding better ways of working as they can stay connected so they have the flexibility to work from wherever they need to be. This activity is part of our on-going commitment to providing Britain with the best network.”

Let’s just hope this proves to be more successful than the current trains that offer Wi-Fi, as that normally is extremely hit and miss from my experience.

Got a BlackBerry smartphone or PlayBook? Why not download the free tracyandmatt app!

T M App

If you visit our site regularly from your BlackBerry or PlayBook we now have a much nicer experience for you – the tracyandmatt BlackBerry application. Free to download from BlackBerry App world our daily news articles are neatly presented in a clean, crisp format and the posts are loaded in a way that means unlike the mobile web version you won’t need to be zooming in and out or scrolling from left to right. Once in an article you can easily just use the arrow tabs at the base of the page to move on to the next news story if you so desire.

If you are wondering why we chose BlackBerry to launch our first app I have a simple answer – It was easy. I did it myself with no previous developer experience. And as well as me being a BlackBerry user we also have 9 million BlackBerry subscribers here in the UK so it seemed a pretty good idea.

This is version one of the app and I will make some tweaks at some point but in the meantime it looks pretty good and works beautifully. And a big thanks to RIM for making the process totally pain and hassle free.

You can download the tracyandmatt app free from your BlackBerry here.

LinkedIn for BlackBerry updated and now it actually works!


If you use a BlackBerry and have been frustrated that the LinkedIn app does not download to your device then good news for you today. Version 2.0 is now available to download from BlackBerry App World and where as prior to the update the app would not download or work on many devices it seems all is good now.

I installed it on my BlackBerry Bold 9900 today and its UI is quite beautiful. If you don’t use LinkedIn maybe now is the time to start as it is integrated into BlackBerry 10 which is the only reason I have bothered to set up a profile recently.

You can grab the app direct from your BlackBerry here.

Bargain of the day from Expansys – The Huawei E586 3G HSPA+


Discount time if you are looking for an unlocked Huawei E586 3G HSPA+ MiFi 21Mbps Mobile Broadband. For today only Expansys have the device available for only £79.99 including free shipping.

The Huawei E586 is a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot (Mi-Fi). It’s the solution to having high speed internet on the move for all of your Wi-Fi enabled devices, saving you money by not needing to buy internet access in a Wi-Fi hotspot (e.g. on a train) and by not needing multiple SIMS for each individual device (e.g. smartphone & iPad). Also it’s perfect for locations that are unable to receive conventional broadband.

Encased in a stylish silver and white design, the E586 is small and light enough to forget about when carrying it in your bag. It’s roughly the size of a small mobile phone and weighs 90g. Fully charged expect a decent five hours of work time with the Wi-Fi on and a rather ridiculous 100 standby hours when it’s switched off. Plus unlike a dongle, the E586 doesn’t need to be plugged into your USB port for power so it won’t drain your devices battery.

Order your discounted MiFi here.
