The connectivity is made possible via BAI's multi-carrier network, which connects the stations and tubes of the London Underground. The infrastructure will be 5G-ready and will allow for ongoing upgrades in the future, and in many cases, both 4G and 5G will be rolled out concurrently.

Complete Rollout by 2024

EE plans to roll out to additional stations throughout 2023, working closely with BAI. As a result, by the end of 2024, customers will be able to enjoy 4G connectivity across the entirety of the London Underground and the Elizabeth line, with 5G Network at most locations.
