The UK rail industry is planning to roll out upgraded high speed mobile broadband network across the busiest section of the country's rail network.
The Department for Transport aims to offer 70% of passengers travelling by train to have access to faster broadband with speeds of up to 50mbps by 2019, while they would see some fast speeds during 2015.
As part of the plans, mobile signal on trains would be boosted by incorporating Network Rail's upgraded infrastructure and the deployment of equipment that minimises barriers to better signal on board a train.
Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said "Passengers deserve to have the best mobile technology and that is why I am pleased that industry is coming together to make that a reality.
"Be it hardworking commuters preparing for the day on their journey into work or leisure travellers making final plans for their weekend away, today's announcement marks the beginning of the end of poor coverage on our railways."
The latest project would involve strengthening a series of 'not-spots', which are the areas along rail corridors with discontinuous or poor coverage of mobile phone signals to offer a steady and reliable service for passengers on major train routes.
