Transport for London (TfL) has awarded BAI Communications (BAI) a 20-year concession to deliver high-speed mobile connectivity across the capital in the UK.
The project will allow mobile operators to immediately provide continuous 4G coverage to their customers across London Underground stations and tunnels and will be 5G ready. The new network will be one of the most advanced and largest of its type in the world. BAI will establish a backbone of connectivity across London, connecting buildings and street assets via a new fiber network to deliver city-wide improvements.
BAI will help the transport authority to deliver seamless 5G ready connectivity that will enable people to move around the city more efficiently, safely, and securely. More specifically, this project will enable TfL to reduce overcrowding and manage station flow, while improving safety with real-time information and reliable communications.
