Vodafone improves Virgin Trains' mobile coverage

Vodafone UK has announced that it is to improve the mobile network coverage on all 52 of Virgin Trains' high speed Pendolino trains, according to a Telecomworldwire report.

Vodafone will use technology that mimics the 2G and 3G coverage outside the train onboard. Vodafone has already the system out to 20 trains and aims to complete the deployment on the Pendolino fleet by November this year.

Vodafone claimed that so far it has improved the number of calls completed without interruption by approximately 60%.
