Answer for Mobile Connectivity on the New Tube for London

Answered By: 
The Mayor

London Underground is already extending Wi-Fi coverage to every below-ground station by the end of 2014.

Connectivity in the tunnels between stations is more challenging, particularly on the deep Tube lines (Bakerloo, Central, Piccadilly and Waterloo & City) that the New Tube for London will serve.

TfL remains open to future solutions that could make connectivity on the deep Tube lines viable.
