Commuting on the London Underground could soon become a tiny bit more bearable. The Tube will get a 4G connection in 2019, meaning that travellers will be able to use the internet in both stations and tunnels. Transport for London (TfL) has already carried out a test on the Waterloo and City line, which has just two stops.

During this experiment, a call made during a journey from Waterloo and Bank stayed connected throughout the entire journey. Vodafone, O2, EE and Three were all involved in this test, suggesting that customers from all three of these providers will be able to use 4G when it’s rolled out in two years’ time.

"The trial took place during engineering hours and was a success, culminating in a test journey being made by one of our contractors from one end of the line to the other with uninterrupted data coverage," TfL said in a statement.
