Tube passengers should soon be able to read emails and check Twitter on the go, as Transport for London (TfL) has formally kicked off the procurement process to deliver 4G mobile coverage across the Underground.

TfL is on track to introduce 4G coverage from next year, with plans to branch out further and incorporate the Elizabeth Line, and potentially the Northern Line extension to Battersea, and Crossrail 2 in the future.

Companies will be competing for a contract spanning work on tunnels, stations and platforms of the London Underground, as well as Elizabeth Line stations below the ground. It will involve the construction of a commercial fibre optic network and the provision of a public Wi-Fi service in specified TfL stations.
