Submission + - London Tube Not Getting Full Mobile Coverage (

judgecorp writes: "Alcatel-Lucent claimed this morning to be in talks to provide mobile coverage throughout the London Underground. That would trump Virgin's provision of Wi-Fi at certain Tube stations, and be good PR during the Olympics — though at this stage, it obviously wouldn't be delivered till after the Games. Alcatel also claimed mobiles in the Tube would make Britain £1.1 billion. Unfortunately, it's not true. Transport for London has issued a denial, saying there are no talks. It's widely believed that mobile coverage is not planned ever in the Tube, owing to fears of terrorists using mobile signals to ignite bombs."
