BAI Communications has launched a permanent 4G mobile service on the eastern section of the Jubilee Line.

It marks the completion of a significant milestone in BAI Communication’s rollout of mobile coverage across the London Underground.

Three and EE customers will be the first to benefit from the 4G and 5G-ready communications between Westminster and Canning Town, while the pilot services with O2 and Vodafone will continue while discussions with BAI on access agreements are finalised for a permanent service.

It follows a successful pilot scheme on the Jubilee Line since March 2020.

Last year BAI Communications was awarded a 20-year concession by Transport for London (TfL) to provide mobile connectivity on the Underground.

BAI Communications CEO Billy D’Arcy says the service will “provide a massive boost to the passenger experience.”

“We’re pleased to announce this first major delivery milestone on our journey to transforming London’s connectivity.

“Customers of our launch partners, Three and EE, will be able to enjoy permanent access to uninterrupted mobile connectivity whilst travelling on the eastern Jubilee Line.”

A permanent 4G mobile service is also expected on the Elizabeth Line and at Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road, Bank, Euston and Camden Town by the end of the year.
