Moovera and Vodafone Collaborate on Wi-Fi for Public Transport

Moovera Networks, a start-up specializing in mobile wireless broadband technology, has collaborated with Vodafone UK to launch high-speed Internet access on the Oxford Tube express coach service. Passengers traveling on the service between Central London and Oxford now have email and web access at speeds up to 1.4 Mbps using a combination of Moovera's mobile Wi-Fi equipment and Vodafone UK's 3G broadband network, which now covers 80% of the UK population.

Moovera supplies a small device that creates a Wi-Fi network throughout a vehicle. The device bridges the Wi-Fi network with Vodafone UK's 3G broadband service that uses HSDPA.
