In a terrifying development, for me at least, O2 (One of the major mobile networks in the UK) are now providing full coverage in five of Glasgow's subway stations.
At the moment, only Buchanan Street, St Enoch, Hillhead, Partick and Govan are being covered, and then only on the platforms themselves; but if consumer reaction is favorable then it will be extended to the tunnels as well.
Gregor Borrie, O2's spokesman said "From today, passengers will be able to walk into the five underground stations, make voice calls, send messages, send photographs, and browse the internet over their phones."
On the plus side: You can now surf the internet and view the wonders of the Escapist whilst nibbling on your deep fried Mars bar.
On the negative side : "HELLO! YES, I'LL BE HOME IN A MINUTE! HAVE YOU GOT THE HAGGIS READY?"
