The mayor of London has confirmed that passengers on the London Underground will be able to access full mobile connectivity and internet access in Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road, Bank, Euston, and Camden Town stations by the end of the year and an entire mobile internet network by 2024.
In March 2020, mobile reception was introduced on the Jubilee line between Westminster and Canning Town. TfL said the additional infrastructure would support 5G as well as 4G, but it would be "the responsibility of mobile operators to offer support for the fastest network speeds".
The London mayor, Sadiq Khan, who was re-elected last month, said in a statement:
I promised Londoners that if they re-elected me for a second term as mayor I would deliver 4G throughout the tube network. It's already up and running on the eastern half of the Jubilee line and I'm delighted to announce today that I am fulfilling that commitment and full internet access will be available across the tube, with key central London stations such as Oxford Circus and Euston set to benefit before the end of next year.
It should be mentioned that TfL is partnering with BAI Communications (BAI), a global provider of 4G and 5G connected infrastructure, to plug so-called coverage "not-spots" in the underground network.
