Train operator Eurostar has unveiled plans to trial a wireless internet service on its cross-channel trains later in the year.
It will follow the lead set by other operators such as GNER and Virgin Trains, which are already experimenting with wi-fi.
According to ZD Net UK, a satellite broadband service similar to the one being trialled by GNER will be used.
Eurostar explained the installation of the service is part of a wider refurbishment programme, which is hoped will attract customers away from rival no-frills short-haul airlines.
However, the firm admitted there would be no wi-fi service while trains are travelling under the Channel.
