In the future, BAI’s infrastructure will be 5G-ready to allow for more upgrades and 4G and 5G could be rolled out simultaneously

EE has announced it is bringing 4G mobile coverage to more London stations- adding to the existing coverage on the eastern half of the Jubilee Line.

Collaborating with BAI Communications, EE is delivering its network to six new stations covering Central and Northern lines.

Coverage will be live at and between Holland Park, Notting Hill Gate and Queensway on the Central line, while Archway, Tufnell Park and Kentish Town on the Northern line will be added in the coming week. 

One testing has been completed over the Christmas period, this will be extended to more stations such as Camden Town, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Circus early next year.

The connectivity uses BAI’s multi-carrier network which links the tunnels and stations of the London Underground, and EE’s network immediately connects to BAI’s infrastructure.

EE plans to rollout to many more stations throughout 2023, and by the end of 2024, customers can access 4G across the entire London Underground, including the Elizabeth line.

Greg McCall, Chief Networks Officer, BT, said: “We’re delighted to be at the forefront of such a transformative project, supporting BAI in delivering what will ultimately be the largest and most advanced network of its type anywhere in the world, and one which aligns with our ongoing mission to digitise the UK through major investment in, and enhancement of, our mobile and fibre networks. 

“It’s also 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.”
