Commuters in London could soon benefit from 4G connectivity while travelling on the Tube.

Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed it is looking for a supplier to build a 4G-capable network across the London Underground.

The procurement process is set to get underway after next week's general election.

Passengers on the Tube can already use a Wi-Fi service, which was introduced ahead of the London Olympic Games five years ago.

However, TfL now wants to ascertain if it is "commercially viable" to go further by offering a 4G system.

A TfL spokesperson said: "We are keen to offer full mobile phone coverage for our customers.

The representative added that any moves to deliver 4G on the Tube would "follow engagement with staff and customers".
