EE's Channel Tunnel 4G Data Connection Hits 57 Mbps Speeds

By Gerald Lynch on at

EE's Channel Tunnel 4G data connection is proving popular with Eurostar customers. Announced back in January, it's been used to download 282GB of data by the train's passengers since being switched on at the end of September. 25,000 EE users have tapped into the connection, which has hit speeds of 57Mbps, and averages out at 13.5Mbps. Considering it's 75 metres underground, with the train travelling at 99mph at some points in the journey (and that the UK average home broadband speed is only a little faster at 18.7Mbps), that's pretty impressive.
