Mobiles on the Tube: more rumours but still nothing confirmed

Chinese telecoms company Huawei is offering to provide equipment that would allow mobile phones to work on the London Underground, according to a report in the Sunday Times. Vodafone and O2 are said to have agreed to arrange installation.

Transport for London, the organisation responsible for the Underground, was quoted as saying “Any solution would need to be funded through mobile operators with no cost to fare or taxpayers. Discussions are ongoing.”

In September 2010 The Telegraph reported that all five major UK networks would share installation and maintenance costs.
