The mayor is in discussions with the UK's mobile phone companies to share the £100m cost of setting up mobile coverage, according to a report in the Evening Standard.
The move would enable passengers to make calls while travelling underground. Vodafone, O2, Orange, T-Mobile and 3 are all currently in talks over the plan.
