Mobile phone services to be implemented in London Underground

Ken Livingstone, the Mayor of London announced
in March a consultation aiming at exploring
possibilities offered by new mobile technologies
in order to improve passengers’ journeys in the
Underground.

These services consist in audio or
video broadcasting and wireless Internet. Many
interested companies expressed their interest
and have been asked to fill the consultation
document by June 30th.

The trial should start in a station in 2006. The
implementation could begin in 2007 for an
availability of services in all stations of the
network in 2008. Coverage of tunnels and
moving trains will be addressed later.

All revenues from these services will be
re-invested in the Underground network to
fund further improvements.
