Will The Elizabeth Line Have Wi-Fi And 4G?

This page on the TfL web site is entitled Everything You Need To Know About The Elizabeth Line, where this is said about Wi-Fi and 4G.

WiFi access within the tunnels will be introduced later in 2022. Customers on both trains and platforms will have access to 4G connectivity this year too.

Will passengers be more likely to take a route through London with Wi-Fi and 4G?

I very much feel they will and that this could draw more passengers to use the Elizabeth Line.

And once, they start to use it, they’ll keep with it, so long as they’re happy.

  1. What the EL doesn’t have is power/usb charging on the trains, which is an omission for a train which supports long journeys into the hinterland. (Some of the LNWR stock up to Birmingham also does not have modern tech amenities)

  2. The trains (Class 345) are an early version of the Aventra which were ordered in 2014 before it became commonplace to specify USB charging. Later versions of the Aventra (such as the Class 710 for London Overground) do have USB ports.
