Internet connection by wireless LAN with bullet train between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka will be put to practical use in the spring of 2009

The newly operated Shinkansen NozomiSeries N700Since outlets can be used at all seats on the window side and at the front and at the back of each vehicle, there is no need to worry about the battery of the laptop computer, which is very convenient. When it comes to this way, I also want to make the Internet comfortable again, apparently it seems to be really possible in the spring of 2009.

Details such as speed to worry about from below.
Results of recruitment of opinions pertaining to partial change of frequency allocation plan etc
Internet connection service realized within Shinkansen train

According to the release released by the Ministry of Public Management, Home Affairs, Posts and Telecommunications, stable communication is possible even during high-speed movement and communication within the tunnel is also possible. There is no need for any special equipment to use it, and the usual wireless LAN is used, and the speed concerned becomes 2 Mbps maximum per train.

In fact it is hard to imagine that this maximum speed will come out, but still it is quite attractive to be able to communicate within the tunnel.
