CrossCountry signs new wifi deal with Nomad Digital

CrossCountry has signed a deal to extend its wifi partnership with Nomad Digital.

Nomad has provided the service to the train operator for the past five years and under the new multi-million pound agreement, it will continue to do so until 2020.

The agreement affects 58 Voyager trains, five High Speed Trains and 29 Turbostar units, with the installation of Nomad’s systems due to start this winter to deliver the latest ‘cutting-edge’ free on-board wifi.

Nomad’s UK and Ireland sales director David Owen said, ‘We accompany our customers for long periods of time through the challenges of the technology evolution, becoming their strategic technology partner of choice.’

CrossCountry’s commercial director Ben Simkin added, ‘With our trains travelling the length and breadth of Britain, it was important that we secured a partner that could deliver a robust and reliable wifi solution.

‘Good wifi is now an expectation when people travel, and with some of our customers travelling hundreds of miles on their journeys they want to feel as connected on the train as they do at the office or home. ‘
