TfL says work to deliver coverage within the tunnelled sections of the Elizabeth line continues, with the first sections between Bond Street and Liverpool Street expected to get coverage within the coming month, with the whole line completed later this year.

Next month, coverage will also begin on the Bakerloo line and the southern end of the Northern line from Stockwell to Morden will also start to get mobile coverage shortly.

All four mobile network operators - Three UK, EE, Vodafone, and Virgin Media O2 (VMO2) - are taking part in the rollout.

Currently, around 31 out of 121 Tube stations with platforms that are underground have mobile coverage.

When combined with Tube stations which are above ground, means that more than two thirds of all stations on the Tube network now have mobile coverage available.

The mayor of London Sadiq Khan says he has committed to completing work across all of the London Underground, Docklands Light Railway, London Overground and the Elizabeth line by the end of 2025.

The newly re-elected mayor Khan said: “This is yet another step towards ensuring Londoners and visitors can stay connected on our transport network. I promised that customers would be able to access high-speed mobile coverage at all stations and in tunnels, and I’m pleased to see how quickly the team is moving to enable 4G and 5G connectivity.

“Now, customers can access the latest travel information, keep in touch with colleagues, friends and family, use social media and stream music at every station along the Elizabeth line.”
