London Underground To Be Mobile Friendly By 2008
It's a shame, really. There are few places left in the world where one can get a break from the seemingly endless chatter of addicted cell phone users. Subways used to be one of them.
The London Underground, the oldest subway system in the world, was a shelter for millions of Londoners during the Blitz of World War II. To date, the Underground, like dozens of other urban subway systems, has been a refuge where one can read, snooze or stare into space, free from being subjected to a neighbor's loud 40-minute conversation to his cousin detailing his recent hemorrhoid surgery.
It seems the respite will soon be over...according to the London Times Online, the city of London has detailed plans to build an underground network to allow mobile phone and laptop users access to wireless signals while they commute. The system will be implemented in stages, and the entire network is expected to be up and running by 2008.
Just when you thought you were safe from the Spice Girls ring tones...
