Heathrow Express, UK

The train journey between Heathrow and central London is a short one – but connectivity is critical for travellers heading to or from the world’s busiest international airport.

Nomad worked to ensure passengers had quick, reliable internet access, even in the 6km tunnel on part of the route. Carriage-mounted ‘shark-fin’ aerials created the required high-speed radio transmission links, while electronics are mounted in custom-built storage units along the track.

“The usage, from the time of launch, has been consistently twice the assumed level in the original business case”
