In a world where connectivity is essential to our daily lives, BAI Communications designs, builds and operates communications infrastructure – cellular, Wi-Fi, broadcast, radio and IP networks – connecting communities around the world.

With our state-of-the-art robust communications systems, governments and businesses can unlock new revenue streams and fast-track the commuter economy.

Experts in confined space communications infrastructure, in Toronto BAI provides Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity at each station throughout the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) subway system. Complete cellular connectivity in all TTC stations and throughout the subway tunnels will be completed by 2021 (with the ‘downtown loop’ scheduled to be completed by the end of summer 2018). Commuters login to the network TConnect with approximately 170,000 sessions and some 100,000 unique devices every weekday.

BAI has also installed over 75 km of fibre in the TTC subway system.

In New York, we enable more than 5 million* daily subway commuters to shop, share, stream, earn and learn through our cellular and Wi-Fi network.

In Hong Kong, commuters on the MTR collaborate, create and stay connected thanks to our trusted expertise in designing and delivering high-quality networks in confined and complex transport systems.

In Australia, we own and operate one of the most extensive transmission networks in the world, delivering 59 million broadcasting hours to 99% of the population. In times of crisis, national broadcasters rely on us to maintain the connection with Australians – flood, fire, cyclone or other natural disaster – and emergency services rely on us to help keep them informed.

In the UK, with our global network of experts paired with local in-depth knowledge, we are working with industry leaders to explore the role of technology in the transport system of the future.

BAI is in the position to create richer commuter experiences and smarter cities.
