16 June 2014 • Author: Michel Boudoussier, Managing Director, Eurotunnel Group
For its 20th anniversary on 6 May 2014, Eurotunnel Group pushed the button to launch a new mobile telephony service for passengers travelling in the North Tunnel of the Channel Tunnel rail link between the UK and France. Michel Boudoussier, Managing Director at Eurotunnel Group, explains that the technology has already been operational in the South Tunnel (direction France–UK) since July 2012, and so now the whole infrastructure is covered, allowing passengers to use their mobile phones and tablets during their journey below sea level.
