Soon you'll be able to make a phone call on the Tube

If you love your phone - you'll love the sound of this. Passengers may soon be able to use their phones while travelling on the Tube.

People can already access the internet through their phone on many platforms of London Underground stations, but service in the tunnels is non-existent.

Other major cities including Paris, New York and Tokyo already have the technology to prevent mobile blackspots while on their metro systems.

Transport for London and London mayor Sadiq Khan are expected to invite bids to run the network after the General Election.
