10X Faster Wi-Fi Internet for Train Commuters

A proportion of the £90 million cost of the scheme will be funded by the government from a record-breaking fine being handed to Network Rail this week. Now ministers say they will make sure the cash will be used to help people get online. The new service, of Wi-Fi Internet for train commuters, which could be 10 times faster than the service available at the moment, should be available within three to four years.
     Commuters will in future be able to get a connection through equipment installed alongside the track, rather than the current system of having to find a satellite signal as they go along. Network Rail could face a potential penalty of about £70 million*.

See different planets

The July night sky is filled with planets to the delight of stargazers and astronomers, but you'll have to know when and where to look to get your summer solar system fix. All through July, the planet Mars and the bright star Spica glow in the west-southwest sky during the evening hours. Saturn, the so-called "Lord of the Rings," can be found to that pair's left and will climb a bit higher (and set a bit later) each night.
