Eurostar and Mobile Telephones

For the first time I was on the Eurostar and it was still light outside. This means that you can see much more clearly just how fast you’re going. 186mph/300kph is Properly Fast!

Speaking to a colleague at work, I’m told that making phone calls on the Eurostar when it’s at full speed is problematic to say the least. It seems that switching from one cell to the next only works if the handset is travelling at 155mph/250kph or less. So at full chat, you’ll be able to make the call but as soon as your handset tries to switch to the next cell it will drop the call.

Who knew?
