In a bid to offer seamless internet connectivity to users while travelling, T-Mobile has joined forces with Virgin Trains to place its HotSpot service onto Pendolino Virgin trains.
The network vows to provide high speed internet connectivity throughout the West Coast line even in tunnel sections, and the initial rollout of the Wi-Fi service would include 52 trains. T-Mobile, in conjunction with Nomad Digital, already offers Wi-Fi connectivity on Heathrow express services and on London to Brighton Southern track.
If you’re going to be (very) late into a segment at least make sure to cause a stir when you do get your arse moving…
To this end BT has finally taken the wraps of its first consumer mobile broadband tariff today and bundled it with its home broadband to create one of the cheapest deals I’ve seen to date.

Television on a handheld receiver – broadcasting with DVB-H
Over the last ten years digital technology has encouraged a rapid growth in the personal consumption of media. The advent of personal video recorders (PVRs), video-on-demand and the multiplication of programme offerings have enabled viewers to personalise the content that they want to watch. And with interactivity, viewers can directly express their preferences to broadcasters.
As part of this trend, and alongside the growth of mobile telephony, new technologies have been developed that enable viewers to watch streamed television-like services on their mobile telephone. The place of viewing is no longer limited to the television receiver at home, or in a vehicle, but is widened to allow personalised viewing of television by individuals wherever they are located.
