• Liverpool Street, Farringdon, Tottenham Court Road and Bond Street stations all now benefit from EE’s superfast 4G
  • Mobile coverage is now live on platforms, escalators and in ticket halls – with tunnels to be connected early in 2024
  • EE customers have consumed over 424TB of data on Central and Northern lines in the 12 months since first stations went live

20th December 2023: EE today announces the arrival of London’s best mobile network1 on TfL’s Elizabeth line, with four central London stations stretching from the West End to the City now live with its superfast 4G.

The Elizabeth line is TfL’s newest train line, having opened in May 2022, and becomes the fourth to receive underground mobile connectivity, joining stations along the Jubilee, Northern and Central lines as part of the ongoing roll-out in partnership with Boldyn Networks.

Billed as London’s ‘east-west railway’, the first Elizabeth line stations to receive mobile connectivity are situated in some of the capital’s busiest locations stretching from Bond Street in its iconic West End through to Liverpool Street in the heart of the City of London.

Today’s news also marks 12 months since EE first announced high-speed mobile connectivity at stations beyond the eastern half of the Jubilee line, and rounds-off a busy year which has seen a total of 25 stations go live, including in recent weeks Goodge Street, Warren Street and several surrounding tunnels to deliver continuous Northern Line coverage between Tottenham Court Road and Archway.

In that time, EE customers have consumed 424TB of data while travelling along the connected stations and tunnels of the Central and Northern lines. This equates to spending over 72,000 hours streaming 4K video, 106 million hours of music streaming, or 28 million hours browsing the internet – demonstrating the value EE’s 4G and 5G networks provide in keeping customers entertained, connected and informed during their journeys.

Greg McCall, Chief Networks Officer, BT Group, said: “We’re delighted to bring the UK’s best network2 to the first Elizabeth line stations, marking another significant milestone in the roll-out of 4G and 5G across the London Underground. That we’re already seeing vast amounts of data consumed by our customers while they travel signifies how important this project is for London’s residents, visitors and businesses, and we’re excited to accelerate the deployment as we head into 2024.”

EE’s coverage is delivered in partnership with Boldyn Networks, whose multi-carrier network connects London Underground’s stations and tunnels both with each other and with the outside world. EE’s mobile network connects to this infrastructure via base stations from Nokia’s AirScale radio access portfolio, providing immediate and continuous mobile coverage to customers.
