Wi-fi on the rails

This sounds like a good idea - entice people who might otherwise use a car, or take a 'plane, to let 'the train take the strain' instead - provide travellers with wi-fi internet access. It's coming - there is talk of equipping 700 trains, operated by five of the UK's train operators, over the next four years. The downside is, of course, that business-people can no longer use being 'in transit' as a reason to be out of touch with the office or clients at any time.
