Public transport organisation SYTRAL announced that LTE connectivity is now available on Lyon’s four underground metro lines. Lyon metro stations were upgraded to LTE in September and since then the service has been extended to all tunnels.
Unveiled at the end of 2017, the project has been entirely funded by private investment, with Orange coordinating the deployment in partnership with Bouygues Telecom, SFR and Free Mobile. In the coming months, execpt to the Lyon metro, the four operators will also bring LTE to the city’s funicular railway system.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lyon has 2,000 years of history imprinted on its streets (yes, the cobblestone kind). Explore this history in Vieux Lyon (one of Europe’s most extensive Renaissance neighborhoods) and Lyon’s two Roman amphitheatres, which still stage rock concerts today.
It’s no wonder Lyon is a popular area for travelers, with its dynamic university, first-class shopping, antique markets, vibrant theatre and music festivals, and a range of interesting museums, such as the International Puppet Museum and the Museum of Miniatures and Film Sets.
