There will soon be no respite for rail travellers in one of the last places where they could escape fellow passengers shouting “I’m on the train” into their phones.
The north tunnel – which runs from Britain to France – under the Channel is to have a mobile connection from March.
Travellers have been able to use their phones in the south tunnel – which carries trains from France to the UK – since June 2012 through French networks.
Eurotunnel has now signed a 10-year contract with British operators Vodafone and EE.
Eurostar passengers and those taking cars on Le Shuttle will be able to make calls and access the internet.
