One of the many spin-off benefits of London hosting the Olympics could be the provision of mobile network coverage on the London Underground. The idea is contained in the Governments Digital Britain report, released today. Noting that the event will be the most digital Olympics in history, the report says that it seems a particularly good opportunity for the mobile network operators to work with the mayor of London to provide and fund solutions to take the initiative to improve broadband mobile access for mobile customers travelling by tube, including international visitors who will be in London for the Olympics.
The report adds:
If regulatory or other similar constraints turn out to be a barrier, the Government is willing to address these.
Well have more on the report shortly when weve had time to digest it.
