Single Mobile Telephony will appear in Russian Tube

Single mobile telephony will appear in Moscow tube by 2016. SpecialWi-Fi networks will be located in wagons as well as mobile connection. This information was provided by Deputy Head of Transport Department Gamid Bulatov.

The official paid attention to the fact that a number of operators are available in tube at the moment. That is why connection is sometimes interrupted. That is why local authorities decided to arrange a competition among companies. The winner will be able to consolidate the whole available infrastructure and will rent if to other operators.

This project will be implemented in the following 2 years in accordance with available information. At the same time the funds will be provided by investors. The budget of metropolitan will not take part in this project.

It should be noted that Wi-Fi network is available on 6 stations. The government is planning to equip all stations with Internet connection by the 1st of January 2015.

Moreover the head of Metropolitan Dmitry Pegov shared his idea regarding creation of WCs for passengers of Moscow tube. They will appear only on new stations which are not very deep under the ground. Old stations will not be equipped with WCs.
