NETWORK RAIL INVESTS £950K IN A BETTER RAILWAY FOR KENILWORTH PASSENGERS
That caught my attention as I grew up in Kenilworth (which is in Warwickshire) and know it very well. Well enough, in fact, to know that it has no railway station so I can’t really see how this is of any benefit to the town.
Ironically, there is talk of a new station being built sometime around 2013. I suspect only then will the impact of “… a brand new set of points, replace an old set of points and renew 300 yards of track” be felt.

A little late, as it relates to my return travel from the USA in June.
I had my trusty netbook with me in the departure lounge (and at the gate) and thought I’d check out what wifi options there were as it was another two hours before boarding.
The only option was Boingo Wireless:
However, the minimum time you can access it for on a PAYG service is 24h. You’d have to be really unlucky to be stuck at the airport that long. Why don’t they have access per hour, as I would expect the longest anyone would find themselves at an airport would be around 4h.
I suspect it’s to tie you into some long term agreement for continuous access, which you most likely won’t ever use a fraction of. Mobile telecomms in the USA is something of a minefield. I got a PAYG phone while I was there and had to put up with the twin irritations of credit expiring after 30 days and you being charged for incoming calls.
