4G and 5G-ready mobile coverage rolls out at more Underground stations

03 January 2023/Categories: Rail, Transport Planning


Six more London Underground stations will offer high-speed mobile coverage to customers, as the next stage of Transport for London (TfL) and BAI Communications' (BAI) project to bring coverage to the Tube network gathers speed. 

Customers travelling between Holland Park and Queensway on the Central line, will start to see 4G and 5G-ready mobile coverage, with coverage between Kentish Town and Archway on the Northern line going live soon. 

Connecting these six stations marks the next milestone in the introduction of high-speed mobile coverage across the entire Tube network. Together with the existing 4G service on the eastern section of the Jubilee Line between Westminster and Canning Town, which was made permanent in April 2022, around ten per cent of Tube stations with platforms that are underground, and therefore usually unable to get a mobile signal, will be providing 4G and 5G-ready coverage to customers.  

By the end of 2024, all Tube stations, as well as the Elizabeth line, will have 4G and 5G-ready coverage. 

The Deputy Mayor for Transport, Seb Dance, said: "Today marks a great step forward in the delivery of mobile connectivity on the Tube, as Londoners will now have increased access to high-speed mobile coverage when travelling through more Tube stations. The Mayor pledged to Londoners that he would deliver 4G throughout the Tube network as part of his commitment to building a better London for everyone - and I have no doubt that this expansion of coverage will help transform journeys for millions of passengers."
