The Moscow metro will hold a competition to create a unified mobile network throughout the city’s sprawling underground transport system, a source familiar with the metro’s plans told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The planned competition was confirmed by two mobile operators, and a source close to the Moscow Department of Information Technology said that the winning company would be required to produce a network that provides 100 percent coverage on all three networks — 2G, 3G and 4G — by leveraging existing infrastructure to created a unified service that will be expanded to attain complete coverage on the metro.
