Trains Internet Connection Improving - Need for Responsive Design Growing

Network Rail has announced plans to roll out ‘high speed mobile broadband’ across its aging infrastructure. They are investing £1.9 billion in upgrading its telecommunication infrastructure to ensure that 70% of its train passengers will able to access the faster broadband by 2019.

The Rail Safety and Standards Board has stated that they expect the telecommunication demand on trains could rise to 200 gigabit per second by 2018, this means that the 192,000 gigabit per second being installed has plenty of spare capacity to meet future needs.

These improvements to our train lines will have an impact in people using their mobiles whilst travelling on the trains. The main impact is that people will be able to use their time on the trains more productively, whether that be doing extra work, ticking off jobs on their to do list or allowing them more time for leisure and relaxation by allowing faster streaming of music, TV programmes and music.

This will boost the already high and increasing number of people viewing sites on mobile devices, this increased use will drive the demand for mobile compatible websites and see companies without mobile enabled sites potentially loosing out of sales and visitors. Responsive sites is no longer optional for long term growth.
