We got all excited about the prospect of having wireless internet access to keep us entertained on the channel tunnel journey. Turns out it’s just a wireless hotspot at Waterloo International and Ashford International terminals. You’d have thought they’d have put hotspots up in the stations ages ago, but it seems the ReadytoSurf connection from Broadreach Networks has only just gone up in departure lounges. Vouchers can be bought from the Eurostar ticket office, travel centre or information desks. You can also buy time with your credit card or use an account with one of Broadreach’s partners. All hope is not lost for full wireless service, however. Trials for on-board Wi-Fi begin next year with two different suppliers. Paris already has wireless in the terminal, but Brussels will have to wait till next year.
