Ken says 'he's on the tube'

Mobile phones

Well our dream is coming true – it looks like the London Underground is to go mobile phone friendly by 2008. That’s the plan if the technology gets OK’d in coming trials, slated for 2007. Mayor Ken Livingstone has announced that the plan will see wireless transmitters installed underground to enable both mobile phone and wireless laptop internet connectivity. "We know that many Londoners would like the convenience of being able to use their mobile phones at Tube stations throughout the Underground network," said Mayor Livingstone. "We also want to see how the technology could be taken even further, for instance wireless Internet so passengers could receive up-to-the-minute travel information via their laptop or mobile phone.”
Sounds great to us, we always appreciate using our mobi in tunnels while on the Heathrow Express.
