“T-Mobile has put a Wi-Fi service on the London to Brighton Express commuter service. It uses WiMax (ok, pre-WiMax) for the uplink, and is cheap enough to put on any other long-distance rail service. One interesting thing is that they didn’t need to wait for next year’s “mobile” WiMax version: the system can handover between base stations at 100mph, using today’s pre-WiMax (802.16d) products. The only drawback – in June the free trial ends, and we’ll have to pay T-Mobile’s high Wi-Fi charges.”
