Tuesday 7 June 2016 | 10:50 CET | News
Orange Spain has announced a plan to bring 4G services to all metro lines currently in operation throughout the country by the end of the year. Although the operator has already activated 4G technology in all the stations covered by the Malaga and Bilbao metro networks, the plan is to expand 4G services to all 83 stations of the Madrid metro and all 92 stations of Barcelona's metro by December. Orange has also started deploying the technology in the Valencia and Seville underground networks and said it would complete the rollout within six months.
