cellphones in the Tube

By 2008, London mayor Ken Livingstone plans to have transmitters in place in Tube stations that will allow mobile phone reception as well as possibly wireless internet and digital radio signals. If feasible, the coverage may also be extended to trains, as well. Liberals and conservatives alike stepped in to voice their opinions on the technology rollout, with officials on both sides feeling compelled to pull The Fear card: "it could enable terrorists to set off bombs remotely," cautioned transport spokesperson Roger Evans.
