Commuters at six London Underground stations will soon be spared the hell of no 4G coverage, thanks to EE.

The mobile operator has just teamed up with BAI Communications to bring 4G to sections of the Central and Northern lines. The network will be live between Holland Park, Notting Hill Gate and Queensway on the Central line, with Archway, Tufnell Park and Kentish Town on the Northern line.

Following further testing, coverage will be extended to additional stations – including Camden Town, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Circus – in the new year. The eastern half of the Jubilee Line is already connected.

The service is possible thanks BAIs innovative multi-carrier network, which links the Underground to the outside world – and therefore to EE’s mobile network. The two companies say they plan to add more stations throughout 2023 and to the entire network by 2024.

Greg McCall, Chief Networks Officer of BT (which owns EE), said: We’re delighted to be supporting BAI in delivering what will ultimately be the largest and most advanced network of its type anywhere in the world. It’s yet another milestone in our ambition to deliver high-speed 4G and 5G EE mobile connectivity to as much of the UK as possible, including previously unreachable locations.”
