Well since the Metropolitan line is part of the Tube network and has several stops in the city center, it's labeled as a metro, but the line's distance(it goes well beyond Greater London's border) also means that it can also be used as a suburban train. So a bit of both, actually.

There must be about 20 of them in service. But there will be more, they're entering service progressively.

Take a zero of that number and you're correct.

You're probably getting them mixed up with the 09TS on the Victoria line, where 20 or so are in service.

London Underground to Gain Mobile Service

Apparently mobile network operators in the United Kingdom are in the last stages of finalising a £150 million deal to deliver mobile phone coverage service to London’s underground network.

According to an article over on Intomobile by Dusan Belic and by way of Cellular-news, the deal between Transport for London and the big four UK carriers has been backed by the Mayor of London, and the deal is expected to be completed within 2 weeks.

A spokeswoman for Transport for London stated, “TfL and the Mayor of London are currently in discussion with mobile phone
operators and other suppliers about the potential provision of mobile phone services on the deep tube network. Given the financial pressures on TfL’s budgets any solution would need to be funded through mobile operators with no cost to fare or taxpayers. Discussions are ongoing.”

Furthermore an “unnamed source” for one of the mobile networks has stated, “We are very close to signing a deal to put mobile on the underground. The Mayor of London is keen for it [the network] to happen before the Olympics.”

Apparently the networks have agreed to begin roll out of the mobile service on the Central and Jubilee lines in time for the Olympics along with other underground lines following after. Well it’s about time they delivers mobile phone coverage when using the underground anyway, don’t you agree?

'Inside job' would clearly require the bombers to be LU staff (or at least one of them)... They were all from Yorkshire. Go back to sleep.

He spent most of his life in Yorkshire (Huddersfield), that's how he knew the other 3... He just happened to be living in Aylesbury at the time of the attacks.
