The recent introduction of 4G on the Jubilee Line took people by surprise. I’m sure few realise it exists though this was quite well publicized at the time. There’s extremely fast speed to be gained from the section between North Greenwich and Westminster. This post serves as a reminder of that and there’s some useful images and also links to articles. That’s probably more important than anything I write!
Anyway, this post is just a quick write up and mostly social media pictures, not much writing, that really takes it out on me trying to write stuff, trying to think of the English, the context, especially when English isn’t my first language – so here’s the first of what I hope will be posts of interest without having to write loads of waffle!
