EE UK Completes 4G Rollout in All of Glasgow’s Subway Stations

Glasgow-Subway-Station-EE-4G

Mobile operator EE (BT) has today announced that they’ve completed the installation and activation of their 4G (mobile broadband) based Emergency Services Network (ESN) in Glasgow’s Subway stations, connecting all 15 Subway stations to their network. But it’s not only the stations and emergency services that will benefit.

In addition to the stations, the ESN is also being installed in the Subway tunnels to further boost critical communications for first responders (e.g. police, fire, medical etc.) along the entire route, with these being “activated in the coming months“.

Coinciding with this upgrade, EE are also enhancing the ESN delivery with commercial 4G services for consumers to benefit from the extra coverage too. The work has been completed in time for COP26 which starts on 31st October, when thousands of people are expected to use the Subway to move between venues during the global event.

Richard Harrap, MD of ESN at BT’s Enterprise unit, said:

“Delivering the ESN to Glasgow’s Subway stations will see a huge benefit to our emergency service responders, enabling them to transmit reliable and consistent digital communications across the 4G network and give first responders immediate access to life-saving information in live situations and emergencies.”

We’re delighted that SPT Subway has also agreed to us opening up the commercial services within the stations which will not only help emergency services but also support the public, allowing travellers to use the video, voice and data services that they love.”

The ESN network will remain protected from the public 4G network, and communication between the emergency services will take priority over all other network traffic – even at peak times – so that the speed of first responders receiving important data is not impacted.

    Be good if EE allowed other operators to piggy back onto the infrastructure for a reasonable fee to rent the infrastructure that is.

    It is good that this country is moving forward, it’s just a pity it’s so long in doing so but good news all the same.

    I’m happy. There used to be Virgin Media Wi-Fi on Subway but it got shut off some months ago. Now there’ll be connectivity again.
