With thanks to an Aussie firm, there will be increased (mobile) coverage etc. on the London Underground. I noticed a year or so ago that the Jubilee line had mobile signal where previously it didn't, so wonder if that was part of a trial.
A 20-year contract for mobile, fibre infrastructure for the Underground.
BAI outlined that it will work to provide a city-wide integrated communications network delivering multi-carrier cellular, wi-fi, and fibre connectivity services. It will also deliver a 4G-enabled and 5G-ready communications network to operate as a neutral host for fixed and mobile operators, as well as critical communications infrastructure for emergency services.
Rolling out infrastructure for mobile coverage in all stations and tunnels will be the first phase of the project, which is expected to be completed in four years.
